RYA Day Skipper (Coastal / Tidal) Sailing Course in Scotland Course Information

 

Every year ScotSail® hosts a 2 or 3 super-special sailing events for those who have already done some sailing (i.e. not raw beginners).

 

These are bespoke adventure cruises led by our Chief Instructor, on one of our larger RYA Training Yachts with the aim of going 'off-the-beaten-track', and to visit some of the most spectacular yachting locations in Western Europe around the islands of the West Coast of Scotland.

 

You can sign up as an individual, couple or group, but you should have had at least some prior yachting experience, and would perhaps suit those who have already completed their RYA Day Skipper Course or international equivalent. This is not a RYA Course.

 

There are no age limits - most of our clients are between 35-65 years, and you should have a reasonable level of health and general fitness.

Scottish GuidedCharter Experience Mile Builder Sailing Cruise Challenge Scale: RYA Day Skipper Practical Sailing Course in Scotland is difficulty level 3.

 

This GC7 (GuidedCharter 7 Days/Nights is a relaxed sailing trip out of the Firth of Clyde and round some of Scotlands amazing islands - and an opportunity for you to take more control over where you go and how you get there.

 

There will be a maximum of 6 persons taking part on board one of our larger cruising yachts, with no set route or goal - other than to get in plenty of sailing miles and visit some fantastic locations on Scotlands West Coast.

 

This trip is ideal as a milebuilder, to get more experience in an informal setting, but still under the guidance of an experienced RYA/MCA Yachtmaster Offshore Instructor.  Many treat this as a 'bridge' between RYA Courses and bareboat yacht chartering.

 

 

A typical course or experience, be it a week or 3-weekends' sailing, will entail leaving our centre at Largs Yacht Haven and engaging in sailing activities and training during the day, whilst en route to a destination. You will likely cover many tens of miles up to 150 miles per week, and you will also have the opportunity to participate in an exciting 4-hour night sail!
