Day Skipper (tidal)

Learn to navigate and take control of the yacht! This 5 day course is designed to teach pilotage, navigation, seamanship and boathandling. The aim is for the student to be able to skipper a small cruising yacht safely, by day on short passages in tidal and non-tidal waters.

Unless you already have a good working knowledge of passage planning, pilotage, tidal heights and streams, collision regulations and taking bearings and fixes, it is advisable to complete a Day Skipper theory course before attempting this practical one.

Suggested minimum previous experience: 5 days sea time, 100 miles, 4 night hours plus basic navigation and sailing ability.

Cost: € 550
