Day Skipper Theory Course Information


The Day Skipper Theory Course is a fun but thorough introduction to navigation for inexperienced skippers, or those wanting to refresh their skills.


The classroom based courses are taught in our high quality maritime training classes in our 2-Level premises at Largs Yacht Haven or our Glasgow (South) classroom, with the latest training equipment.   The course provides you with enough knowledge to navigate safely by day and a topic of lights on buoys on ships is also included to introduce you to cruising at dusk / night.


If there are no class-based dates to suit you, you can do the entire course online, on your computer or tablet/mobile device, with RYA Course Pack, Charts and Books delivered to your door.

Most people who take this course are doing so because they want to achieve the Day Skipper Practical or I.C.C. to either bareboat charter a yacht, join a flotilla cruise, or perhaps buy a yacht / go sailing with friends etc.     Some are also working towards professional qualifications or a Commercial Endorsement.   The next level up is the RYA Coastal / Yachtmaster® Shorebased Theory Course.


However you choose to do it, all our Day Skipper Theory courses include the RYA Course Pack, Online Resources or CD-ROM, RYA Electronic Chartplotter Software, all learing equipment and books, free use of classroom navigation instruments (or purchase your own to keep) and all mock and real assessment fees, as well as your final RYA Certificate.
