RYA Day Skipper Shorebased Theory Course

RYA Day Skipper Shorebased Theory Courses are five days long and provide you with the theory knowledge required to enable you to safely Skipper a boat in waters you know during the hours of daylight prior to going  on a  Day Skipper practical training course. Completing this course prior to the practical training helps you achieve far higher standard of practical competence.

Day Skipper Theory Syllabus includes shore based modules in navigation, pilotage and passage planning, the buoyage system, meteorology, safety and seamanship, collision regulations, fog routine, tides, navigational aids and an introduction to crew management. This theory course will consolidate what you learned on your RYA Essential Navigation & Seamanship Interactive theory course and build on this to provide increased confidence in your ability to manage the boat and crew as a Day Skipper during and after your practical course.
