Day Skipper £650
What’s Required To Take This Course
The RYA Day Skipper Sail course is a practical course that is designed to take you from crew member to skipper. In order to get the best out of this course you should have the sailing experience to be comfortable sailing a yacht. You should be able to handle all the crew jobs such as helming, trimming sails, using lines and winches and generally know your way about.
You should also be equipped with the theory knowledge required for a Day Skipper before attending this course. The ideal way to get this is by joining us on our Day Skipper Theory course.
Why Take The Course With Us?
Our RYA Day Skipper Sail courses are designed to give you the best training in the best surroundings. We take our practical courses out in Alicante where the weather and conditions are great for sailing. You can read more about why we do this here: https://www.getlostpowerboattraining.com/sailing-courses-abroad/
As well as the holiday vibe, we also limit the number of students on the boat to four people. This ensures that you get that much more attention when honing those skills.
All our courses abroad are run at Costa Blanca Sailing and you can see their website HERE.
So What’s In The RYA Day Skipper Sail Course?
You will learn how to brief crew on safety equipment as well as how it should be used. Some of this knowledge will be a refresher but the responsibility will be new.
You will take charge of planning short passages between marinas and delegating jobs to the crew. You’ll be planning entry into different marinas and preparing navigation plans for everyone to follow.
We will teach you how to recover a man overboard from the water and how to sail onto mooring buoys. These are great skills for emergencies but also for your confidence as skipper.
We will also go out in the dark and experience some night sailing and a night entry into a harbour.
All of this while enjoying the great sailing opportunities that the Spanish coast has to offer.
Half Price VHF Radio and First Aid Courses
Another great reason to train with us is this fantastic offer. We know from experience that all skippers need a VHF licence and they need to refresh their maritime first aid. When you book any of our practical courses you get 50% off our VHF and First Aid training weekend.
That’s two essential courses for the price of one!
