During the Covid 19 pandemic, we are offering an INSTRUCTOR LED ONLINE Day Skipper course on Zoom with one of our valued partners. You can see the instructor, ask questions, see your fellow students, see the whiteboard and any slides the instructor shows. It’s just like being in the classroom apart from you are sat in the comfort of your own home.
The Day Skipper shore-based course is for those that have done little or no actual navigation, regardless of your experience at sea
The course includes lots of navigation (including use of GPS and electronic charts), meteorology, collision regulations and safety procedures.
When we don’t have a pandemic to deal with you can join one of the classroom courses listed here.
Ideally, the Day Skipper theory course should be followed by a Day Skipper practical course. On completion of the practical course, you will be qualified to charter and skipper a yacht. Depending on how much sailing you have previously done you may need to take a practical Competent Crew course before taking the Day Skipper Practical Course.
