The nights on board the training yacht are included in the course fee. Costing from just £399 per person with a maximum of 4 students per course means lots of quality tuition from the RYA Yachtmaster instructor running your RYA Day Skipper practical course. 

Successful completion of this courses entitles you to hold the ICC Certificate that is required to skipper a yacht in most foreign waters.

This course is run by Solent Boat Training who are the sole provider of RYA training for us, we simply would not use any other training centre as we know a lot of day skipper students come back to charter yachts from our Bavaria fleet.

We use one of our trio of Bavaria 37 yachts as we take to the waters of the Solent heading for an overnight stops in Cowes & Yarmouth on the Isle of Wight. You will learn to manage your crew to complete many passages and exercises acting as skipper in a safe and seaman like many. A short night passage is also included.

RYA Day Skipper Sailing Practical Course Prerequisites

RYA Day Skipper students do require a good level of sailing experience which normally included have completed the RYA competent crew course with additional sailing following that course to hone those new skills. Solent Boat Training run mileage builders and skills days that are well worth doing before the day skipper course.

Students also require their seamanship and navigation skills to be to the level of RYA Day Skipper theory. The obvious way to ensure your theory is to the required level is to do that course. Unfortunately the most common reason some students to not complete the practical day skipper course first time is due to their lack of theory knowledge, you have been warned !
