This is a 2 course package that brings RYA Competent Crew up to the RYA Day Skipper Practical qualification which is the qualifying grade for the award of an International Certificate of Competence (ICC)
There are Package Options as follows:

Option 1: RYA Day Skipper Theory – Theory Course taken over the first 4 days in the Classroom followed immediately by the RYA Day Skipper Practical – which involves 5 days of practical sailing. The assessments for the Theory courses are taken during the Practical course.
Given that many people take a 2 week vacation this is an ideal package that combines Day Skipper training with the opportunity to take a few days R & R in the Caribbean, or one or two of our Short Courses to supplement your training.
