Dayskipper Practical Available on either sail or motor boats.
(Sail or Power) On completion of this course you will be competent to take charge of a boat in familiar waters during daylight hours and you will have some night experience too. The qualification embraces a basic practical understanding of navigation combined with the ability to manoeuvre the Yacht under Power or Sail. This is a 4 day course for power and a 5 day course for sail, or it can be completed over weekends. The entry level is Dayskipper theory or equivalent knowledge. The certificate is assessed by the instructor, it is not an "automatic pass" and there is a standard to be achieved. Some people ask if they can do the theory and practical in the same week.... the answer is "you have to be joking!" That would be impossible and against RYA regulations! This certificate may be commercially endorsed and used for professional purposes.
