Sail YSL's next RYA Day Skipper theory course is running in January 2014 and there are only 2 spaces left.

The dates are 11/12, 18/19 & 25 January.

If you have an ambition to charter a yacht in the Med (for instance), then Day Skipper is the ideal qualification.

This course is the theory part and you will need to demonstrate knowledge of the subjects covered by this course in order to pass the practical part.

More information about the course here: http://sail-ysl.ch/rya-day-skipper-theory/

Contact me by PM or via www.sail-ysl.ch/contact to book or if you have any questions.

Re: RYA Day Skipper theory course

Well, I`m feeling pretty pleased with myself after successfully completing (that means a PASS) the 5 day shore-based theory part of the RYA day skippers course.
A really enjoyable, quite intense course - a big big thanks to the skipper eng_ch at RYA theory courses for a very well structured course . . and obviously for coaching us through it!
I would certainly recommend it to anyone thinking about getting into sailing this year.
Next stop, the Med, for the practical assessment . . . can`t wait.
Hopefully then . . . it`s Basher at the helm and shiver me timbers matey!

Try and go somewhere tidal in the Med e.g. Gibraltar. With a tidal ticket you can sail in both tidal and non-tidal areas, but vice-versa not so and you would have to do a further course to upgrade.

Thanks for that useful info - which indeed I was alread advised on the theory course.
One sensible step at a time - My plan was always to start in the non-tidal waters of the Med and then do the upgrade for the tidal certificate.
