A comprehensive introduction to cruising for inexperienced skippers.
This course equips you with enough knowledge to navigate around familiar waters by day. A basic knowledge of lights is also included to introduce you to night cruising.
We are continually updating our courses to take into account developments in technology and the electronic navigation aids now available on most cruising boats.
The course is taught over 40 hours with two exam papers. It can be covered as a series of short sessions, as an intensive week-long course, or by distance learning.
Course topics include:
Students receive an RYA Day Skipper Navigation certificate and a 10% discount voucher off of future navigation courses. The Day Skipper certificate is an ideal course to go along with the RYA Intermediate Powerboat course and also enable you to gain the knowledge required for the Day Skipper practical courses.
