During your Intensive RYA Day Skipper Courses you will learn the theory and practical knowledge required to skipper a yacht in familiar waters by day. The Intensive RYA Day Skipper Courses is suited to people who have limited time to dedicate to sailing activities, or prefer to put the theory into practice straight away.
The pace of life and the responsibilities and commitments of work and the family often leave little time for other activities. This course is designed for those who have limited time; it is intensive and will not suit everyone. We have found people learn at different speeds, while some may benefit from an intensive course, other may require time to digest the theory before trying the practical. If you are unsure if the intensive course will be suitable for you, please do not hesitate to contact us to discuss the options.
