Dayskipper Theory

This 40-hour, land-based course is designed as a comprehensive introduction to cruising for inexperienced skippers. Run intensively over a week or over a series of evening sessions, this course will give you enough knowledge to safely navigate around familiar waters during daylight hours. We also teach about lights in preparation for night cruising. There are two exam papers at the end of the course.

Topics covered include seamanship basics, essentials of navigation and pilotage, chart work and meteorology. Lessons are usually conducted from the Porto Montenegro Sailing Squadron. This course is an essential foundation preceding the RYA Dayskipper Practical course.
