RYA Day Skipper Practical

5 days of practical sailing. Learn hands-on skippering techniques, navigation, pilotage, boat handling and seamanship.

Taking charge of a yacht can be a daunting yet highly rewarding experience. Under the guidance of our expert instructors, you will gain the knowledge and hands-on experience you need to confidently skipper a yacht in a variety of sailing conditions.

By completing short passages as skipper, each student practices weather forecasting, victualling, engine maintenance, sail selection, passage planning, watch keeping, navigation, pilotage and importantly boat handling under power and sail.

On completion, you will receive an RYA Day Skipper Course Completion Certificate. If you then wish to sit a South African Sailing assessment you may do so. This would entitle you to a Certificate of Competence that allows you to skipper a yacht along the coast of South Africa in daylight hours.

You will be accommodated onboard your training yacht for the duration of the course and all food is included.
