How the Theory Course works

The Day Skipper Theory course, run by our partners Navathome, allows you to learn at your own pace, and is ideal for those without any navigational experience. The course takes approximately 40 hours to complete, with a two part assessment at the end of the course. Course material will be delivered to your door before you start, including the RYA Day Skipper theory pack and the Day Skipper course notes.

How the Practical Courses work

The RYA Competent Crew and RYA Day Skipper Courses are both run over 5 days at Seafarer’s Solent Sailing School and can either be run over a week or a number of weekends. Each training boat will have an Instructor and up to 5 students. You will stay on the boat for the duration of the course and visit different harbours in the Solent Area.
