Day Skipper 

Take charge on short passages under instruction, with help and advice from your instructor.

This course can also help you get the best from your modern electronic aids such as GPS and radar, which are now virtually standard equipment on modern motor cruisers.

Before attending the course you should be able to navigate and are well advised to attend the RYA Day Skipper shorebased course to brush up on your skills (see Navigation and seamanship theory on the left).
