RYA Day Skipper Practical Course
A formal Sail or Power day skipper qualification is a way of obtaining cheaper insurance, so you will immediately see a return on your course investment.
This course can also help you get the best from your modern electronic aids such as GPS and radar, which are now virtually standard equipment on modern motor cruisers.
Before attending the course you should be able to navigate and are well advised to attend the RYA Day Skipper shorebased course to brush up on your skills (see Navigation and seamanship theory on the left).
