ON LINE COURSES – DAYSKIPPER THEORY COURSE ONLINE £289.99
RYA Day Skipper online theory is an enjoyable entry level shorebased course that gives a rounded and practical introduction to the basics of navigation. The course is delivered fully online enabling you to complete it from the comfort of your own home and at your own pace. All course materials are provided in a handy navigator’s bag: including paper charts, training almanac, shorebased notes, Portland plotter and dividers. Instructor support and the cost of the exams is also included in your course price.
The Day Skipper syllabus is designed to give a new skipper the confidence to plan and safely undertake day time passages. It covers the basics of chartwork, tidal systems, seamanship, meteorology and collision regulations. It also deals with coming in and out of the harbour and the factors to consider when looking for an anchorage.
Armed with your newly-acquired theory knowledge, you are able to undertake the RYA Day Skipper practical course, which is typically held over 5 days.
Upon completion of both your RYA Day Skipper practical and theory course certificates, you are also able to apply for an ICC (International Certificate of Competence). Holding your ICC means you can bareboat charter a yacht in many countries worldwide, this is the under 24 meters ICC.
