RYA Day Skipper Theory – From £360

Day Skipper RYA Theory Courses in London, Berkshire or the South Coast (Solent or Brighton) based at either your work place (or  just west of London close to Staines), Hamble, (Southampton) or at Brighton Marina.

Run either over a series of evenings and 1 weekend in your own workplace or the 2.5 weekends at our venues described above you will learn the art of basic navigation, meteorology, tides and all you need to know to navigate in familiar waters during the day. We offer excellent package deals with the RYA Day Skipper Practical course for you to practise your navigation for real. 2 exam papers are part of the theory course.

Day Skipper – In Your Workplace

If you have a boardroom or meeting room available we can run RYA Day Skipper courses in your place of work. You get great incentives for being the instigator and discounts for your colleagues, friends and family!
Once you have picked the day and time to suit you and your colleagues, we will help you fill the course and as instigator of the course you are entitled to a heavily discounted or free place. We run a series of evenings plus the final weekend which includes the exam papers. We will also help fill the course from those outside your work place if people would be allowed access. We require a minimum of 10 to run the course. Just give us a ring or drop us an email and we will run through the process with you. infobn@datchetwatersports.co.uk

Who is it for?

This is an absolute must for wannabee yachties that wish to progress from the skills of dinghy sailing to being able to handle a boat in coastal waters during the day. It is invaluable if you are thinking of trying a flotilla holiday in the future and then working your way up to bare boat charter. It covers a variety of navigation and further seamanship skills. Ask for a full info sheet and reserve yourself a space as places are limited. You do not need to have any previous practical experience prior to this course – but it does help. Try one of our fantastic taster weekends aboard in the Solent.

The theory lessons and some powerboat courses can be completed at our inland RYA centre at Datchet (close to Windsor in Berkshire just west of London) based upon our large 500 acre Queen Mother Reservoir, and the beginner practical tuition either from the river Hamble at our yacht charter base at Mercury Yacht Harbour  with the RYA Day Skipper or Brighton Marina delivered by our coastal sea school partners.
