Who is going to teach you?
Our theory instructors have done it. They have travelled the world and seen distant shores. They have roared and led crews through storms and high winds. Known battered rigging and rocky coves. Adventure is in their blood and they will share all that knowledge and experience with you. Stuff you can’t get from a text book.
All our theory instructors are Yachtmasters. That means that they are at the top of their game and there is nobody better than that to teach you. During your time with them you should make the most of their knowledge and experience. Ask them questions about anything you want to learn and they will be happy to help. All of them genuinely care about your outcome.
Why take your course with us?
The Day Skipper theory course is an intense course and there is a big learning curve to overcome.
We understand that everybody has different learning styles and we have had the practice to make sure we meet your needs as a student.
We will share lots of resources with you so that you can find the best way to learn. The way that fits you.
An extra day
Another thing that really sets us apart from everyone else is that our course is run over 6 days instead of 5.
This makes a massive difference to you as you will have extra time to consolidate knowledge and really hone your skills. Your next step will be to take a Day Skipper practical course and the better you know your stuff, the better the outcome of your next course.
We run two options. One over 6 consecutive days and the other over three weekends.
