RYA Day Skipper Theory Course


Day Skipper Theory Course(also known as Day Skipper shorebased Course)


5 days (in a week) or 5 days over three weekends.

Scheduled day skipper courses are held at SouthamptonHampshire UK and in the Solent area.

Likely participants:

The course is equally applicable for sail or power boaters and suits those keen to spend a good amount of time developing their theoretical knowledge away from the water, either before or after attending a Day Skipper Practical Course. It also acts as an excellent follow on to Powerboat Level 2 or as an essential ahead of the Advanced Powerboat Course.

This is an excellent course to take as it goes into far more detail about aspects of safety, boat types, weather, navigation, charts, Collision Regulations, etc, than can be achieved over the duration of a short practical course. Entirely classroom based, this course lasts 5 days or three weekends depending on the course you want to attend.

This is an ideal course for a RYA Powerboat Level 2 or Motor Cruising Helmsman ‘graduates’ to take to build on their knowledge or as a prerequisite for the Advanced Powerboat Course. Equally if you intend taking Day Skipper Practical Course then taking this course will allow more of your practical course to be dedicated to the practical aspects of the course
