Day Skipper Practical

Day Skipper Practical

The first practical skipper course in the RYA syllabus is a full on, peddle to the metal, roller coaster of a week. This is where you get to  implement all the skills and theory that you worked so hard to acquire.

The course itinerary covers basic pilotage and passage planning, navigation, boat handling and good seamanship. You’ll learn to Med moor, trim sails proficiently and develop good yacht management skills where safety and attention to detail is paramount.

Always under the watchful eye of your Force 4 Sailing instructor you’ll be undertaking all aspects of skippering a modern sailing yacht. This is no easy task, your skills and knowledge will be tested and you will be pushed outside of your comfort zone and for this reason we recommend that you to have completed the RYA Day Skipper theory or have knowledge and experience to that level.

With its warm sunny climate, safe waters and many different marinas the Costa Tropical is an ideal training ground so why not challenge yourself to become the best Day Skipper that you can be?
