The RYA Day Skipper Practical Course is an introduction to taking charge onboard a yacht, allowing you to put your basic navigation, pilotage, and sailing skills into practice. It will provide you with an opportunity to take command, and to develop your leadership skills onboard, under the guidance of an experienced and friendly instructor.
Upon successful completion of the RYA Day Skipper Practical Course, you will be able to navigate and skipper a small yacht in familiar waters by day. This qualification is usually required when chartering a yacht as skipper anywhere in the world. Holders of the RYA Day Skipper Practical qualification can apply for an International Certificate of Competence (ICC).
If you wish to complete the Day Skipper Theory and Practical course at the same time why not check out our RYA 9 Day Combined Day Skipper Theory and Practical course to gain 2 RYA qualifications in just one week.
Next Steps - Once you have completed the RYA Day Skipper Course you may wish to try your hand at skippering further afield in which case we recommend one of our Instructional Cruises followed by the Coastal Skipper/Yachtmaster Theory Course and RYA Coastal Skipper Practical course.
If you are going to be chartering a yacht in the future we would also recommend the VHF/SRC Radio Course.
