Day Skipper Theory Classroom 5 Day Course WINTER 1

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. This can be evening classes or Five-day blocks (usually Mon to Friday). If you don't see a course that fits your calendar, please discuss your requirements with us. We can do weekends.

To book choose a date in the calender on the right or if you can't see a date call us on 07834733323
