The RYA Day Skipper Theory is 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.

At Jolly Roger Sailing we use the RYA training materials and try to integrate your lessons with real charts and almanacs so that you get a feel for the equipment you will be using on your own boat.

The course is normally taught by our principal instructor who has over 50,000 miles sailing offshore, including Atlantic crossings.

The course duration is a total of 40 hours with two exam papers.
