RYA Day Skipper

RYA Day Skipper

The RYA Day Skipper Practical is a five day course which is designed to teach students to assume full responsibility for the yacht and its crew.

RYA Day Skipper - West Cork - Ireland

On the Day Skipper course students will skipper the yacht on short passages in the West Cork with much emphasis on boat handling and navigation. A full safety briefing is given before the yacht sails.

You will visit different harbours and anchorages to practice pilotage techniques. The course aims to provide you with the skill and confidence required to plan and undertake a short passage in tidal waters as the skipper and be able to berth the boat safely. Man overboard recovery techniques will also be practised with a dummy, such as a fender tied to a mooring line, substituting for the real thing. The instructor will debrief students after each exercise or passage.

The course will start with a get to know your crew on Saturday evening. It will finish about 4 pm on the Sunday, after boat cleaning and individual debriefings.
