RYA Day Skipper Theory Course

The RYA Day Skipper Theory Course is aimed at students who would like to be able to skipper a small boat in familiar waters by day and it will impart the theory knowledge to undertake this. This course works hand in hand with the Day Skipper practical course and is aimed at motor boaters, sailors and power boaters alike.
