Day Skipper Plus

Day Skipper Plus

Have you recently completed your RYA Day Skipper course, and would like to gain some more experience before attending your RYA Coastal practical? Perhaps you attended your RYA Day Skipper course a few years ago and need to refresh your skill? The Equinox Day Skipper Plus course could just be what you're looking for.

Equinox Day Skipper Plus Course Content

Spend a weekend refreshing your RYA Day Skipper skills with a qualified RYA Instructor. If you are looking to bridge the gap between RYA Day Skipper and RYA Coastal Skipper then learn some new skills.

New Skills

  • Refreshing Day Skipper skills
  • Advanced pilotage techniques
  • Advanced boat handling under sail and engine
  • Seamanship
  • Navigation

Join the boat on Friday evening and meet your instructor and crew, start your course on Saturday morning, returning Sunday afternoon.

Useful literature

The RYA Day Skipper Practical Course Notes is a useful book both during the course and as an aide memoire after your course, and can be purchased for £10 – please let us know if you would like to order a copy when you are booking your course.  We also have a section on sail handling that contains some worksheets you might find useful.

RYA Theory Course Videos

We now have a set of RYA Theory Course tuition videos and Equinox Sailing Manual to accompany all our theory courses.

After your course

You will have refreshed your RYA Day Skipper skills and practised some new skills that will help you complete your RYA Coastal Skipper practical course.
