The Day Skipper Course teaches you the skills needed to safely skipper a yacht in by day. Whilst it is a reasonably intense course, there is still time to stop at a different port each night and enjoy the Ionian islands. You will have plenty of time at the helm and without tides to worry about, your learning can really focus on everything else – in particular the boat handling and sail trim. The course lasts for 5 days, including at least one night passage of 4+ hours.
Join a yacht with other people. We like to teach a maximum of 4 people at a time. We feel it gives you that extra attention and time from the instructor and also space on board the yacht. The course lasts for 5 days. These courses are limited as we need a minimum of 3 people to run the course.
Charter a yacht for 5 days with partners, friends or family (Suggested Maximum 4 people). Training this way as a familiar small group gives more personalised tuition, more time in charge of the yacht and additional spaces and comfort. Successful Day Skippers will have the opportunity to skipper the yacht themselves with their family and friends and get an idea of what a yacht holiday as a qualified skipper would be like.
This course is for individuals or families/groups.
