No Previous Experience required

Our 3 Week Day Skipper Course is designed to take you from the beginning at Competent Crew, with No Sailing Experience, to an Accomplished Skipper holding your RYA / MCA Day Skipper Sail Certificate and also includes your RYA Radio & RYA Diesel Engine Maintenance Courses.
