Combined RYA 9 Day Intensive Day Skipper theory and practical course; normally £850, now £500. During this combined course you can achieve both Day Skipper Theory and Day Skipper Practical. We start with 2 days in the classroom, then 2 days sailing, then 2 more days theory and 3 days sailing. The teaching ratio is 4:1 so you will get plenty of personal attention and practice. A great way to learn with only 5 days off work! You will likely visit various ports of the Pembrokeshire Coast, Tenby, Milford Haven, Broad Haven, Lundy. The fee includes accommodation on the yacht and all meals except for four evening meals in a local pub on the theory days. Helming, sail and rope handling, navigation, coastal passages, night sailing, safety: all form part of these courses. The skipper cooks and the food is excellent, with a glass of wine included in the price. Sailing oilskins available for hire if required.
