So you’ve done your RYA Day Skipper Theory, and you’re looking for an RYA Day Skipper Practical Course? Look no further. Equinox Sailing runs RYA Day Skipper Practical Courses on a regular basis. The course is designed to help you learn to skipper a yacht in familiar waters by day. It’s the first step towards becoming a skipper, and will help you learn to put all your sailing theory into practice.
Among other things, during the five-day (Monday to Friday) RYA Day Skipper Practical Course with Equinox Sailing, you will learn how to:
• Leave from and return safely to your berth;
• Anchor the boat;
• Moor to a buoy;
• Rescue anyone who falls overboard;
• Navigate safely during daylight hours and get some experience of night navigation; and
• Keep yourself and your crew safe on the boat.
During the course, you will experience sailing by night, and you can enjoy sailing to a different port every evening. We start on Monday morning, and return to base on Friday evening.
The course is an essential before you can charter your own boat; the RYA Day Skipper Practical Course is a qualification recognised around the world as one enabling you to safely sail a crewed boat during the day on familiar waters.
