RYA Day Skipper Theory Course

Sejlbåd set mod stævnen

The RYA Day Skipper Navigation & Theory course is designed for those new to skippering and those who already skipper, but want a thorough grounding in theory and navigation for cruising.

The course is intended for participants with sailing experience and who want to improve their skippering skills from a theory perspective, so as to be able to skipper a small yacht in familiar waters in daylight in preparation of taking the internationally recognised RYA Day Skipper practical course and exam.

The course covers the following topics: seamanship, coastal navigation and pilotage, chartwork, electronic charts, position fixing, plotting a course to steer, meteorology, tides, and collision regulations. The course meets RYA requirements for 40 hours teaching and 3.5 hours for the assessment. The course is delivered in English with a student-instructor ratio of 12:1.

Successful completion of the course requires a good level of attendance as well as time between training sessions for preparation, practice and revision. The assessment will take place on 9th March. A certificate is issued on successful completion of the course and assessment. Whilst RYA has not set pre-requisites for undertaking this course, Sailing First expects participants to have done a minimum of 40 hours active sailing, such as having completed 2 seasons in a club sailing school (or spent time cruising, or similar).

This course is recognised by the Danish Maritime Authority as an equivalent to the Duelighedbevis theory exam.

Sailing First is the only RYA Recognised Training Centre in Denmark allowing it to use the RYA quality tick mark. Further information about RYA recognition and Sailing First can be found on sailingfirst.dk and at rya.org.uk.
