RYA COMBINED DAY SKIPPER THEORY AND PRACTICAL COURSE

Course Overview

FREE ACCOMMODATION AND RYA SRC RADIO FOR JUST £39.00.
The RYA Day Skipper Combined Theory and Practical Course is a great way to achieve both Day Skipper Theory and Day Skipper practical qualifications in one intensive course, over 9 days. This RYA course is a great mixture of classroom-based theory and on-board practical tuition, allowing you to put the theory into practice without any hesitations. The course itinerary will be flexible to meet students needs, whilst still ensuring that all elements of both course contents are covered. Typically it will start with 2 days in the classroom, jumping on-board one of our training yachts, where the theory training will continue hand in hand with the practical training, returning at the end of the 9 days to undertake the theory exams.

All content of the course remains the same as separate courses, please see further details of Day Skipper Theory and Day Skipper Practical.

Accommodation is included for the duration of the course on-board the yacht.

This is a popular and cost effective way of achieving your RYA Day Skipper certificate, allowing you to confidently and safely take charge of a boat on passages. Thinking of chartering abroad? Then you can send away for an ICC (International Certificate of Competence) on completing your RYA Day Skipper.
