Sail Grenadines offers classroom courses in the Grenadines for 5 days prior to Day Skipper Practical. We recommend studying the Day Skipper Theory online giving more time for working through the exercises prior to arrival in the Caribbean.
Sail Grenadines works with select theory operators for online theory tuition – ask us for our recommendations. Our instructors are then available to assist in answering questions throughout the learning process.
