RYA DAY SKIPPER THEORY COURSE – TO BE RUN AS AN EVENING CLASS 2018 – 2019

This course equips you with enough knowledge to navigate around familiar waters by day and is therefore essential if you are planning to do your Day Skipper practical course. A basic knowledge of lights is also included to introduce you to night cruising. No previous knowledge is required, but we do cover a lot of ground, so if you are new to this please ensure you put all the dates in your diary, as you will be expected to catch up with anything you may have missed.

Course topics include:

  • the basics of seamanship
  • the essentials of coastal navigation and pilotage
  • chartwork
  • electronic charts
  • position fixing
  • plotting a course to steer
  • weather forecasting and meteorology
  • tides
  • collision regulations
  • construction, parts and equipment of a cruising boat
  • emergency and safety procedures including distress calls, use of flares, safety harnesses, lifejackets and liferafts
