Day Skipper by day.

Once you have decided you love sailing (as we do), you then move on to actually skippering a yacht by day in local waters.
RYA courses are run by Miramar Sailing School
RYA Day Skipper Theory – If you are going to take command you have to extend your knowledge into the realms of skippering.
Before you can take the yacht out sailing you will need to know where you are going, and how to get back to shore safely. This theory course teaches the essentials you will need.
The topics are safety, navigation, meteorology, and the International Regulations for the Prevention of Collision at Sea (IRPCS)
There are two options for taking this course.
1. A face-to-face classroom course, over five days, in our open air classroom. This is our recommendation.
2. An Online Study course that needs 40/50 hours of home computer study. An online tutor will guide and assess your work on completion. This course is delivered by Navathome.
Either option will achieve the Shore Based Day Skipper Theory Course Completion Certificate.
RYA Day Skipper Practical – Now you need to actually take a yacht to sea and take command!
This is a five day live-a-board practical sailing course.
It provides the opportunity to put the theory knowledge into practice by being responsible of the yacht and crew.
You will learn how to give crew safety briefs and navigate between two places within sight of land in daytime.
The course should achieve the Day Skipper Practical course completion certificate.
There is a lower age limit of 17 for this course.
This qualification provides eligibility to apply for the International Certificate of Competence (ICC), and can be Commercially Endorsed by the Maritime Coastguard Agency (MCA) . This endorsement permits you to operate in a professional capacity.
The ICC is generally considered to be the “passport” to bare boat chartering in many regions of the world.
Single ladies may book a course once a minimum group of two has booked. A 5% fully refundable deposit will reserve your place.
