Sunsail’s RYA Day Skipper theory course is a fully comprehensive, five-day course, either shore-based in the classroom or online. The online course is offered through NAVATHOME, which enables you to complete the course online, from the comfort of your own home.
The RYA Day Skipper theory course is a recognised qualification covering chart work, tidal systems, seamanship, meteorology and collision regulations.
The course also deals with coming in and out of the harbour and the factors to consider when looking for an anchorage.
The course aims to teach students how to apply theoretical knowledge to their practical sailing skills and is recommended prior to taking the Day Skipper practical course.
