As the sailing season in Corfu creeps to an end we’re happy to announce that our most popular RYA practical training course is indeed the RYA day skipper training Corfu Course. We’ve had a record number of passes this year, not only have we provided practical training but this year we have also provided online theory training courses.
Is the RYA day skipper training Corfu course suitable for me?
If you have already completed the RYA competent crew course or have at least 5 days yacht sailing experience then the Day skipper training course is the next course you should take, it teaches pilotage, navigation, seamanship and boat handling up to the required standard to skipper a small cruising yacht safely by day in non tidal waters with which the student is familiar.
This course will also enable you to apply for the ICC (International Certificate of Competence). This qualification is required by most European countries to validate your competence to own or charter a boat. The ICC, obtained by presenting your RYA Day Skipper certificate, will cover sailing yachts up to 24 meters in length in coastal waters. If you are looking for a commercial endorsement you will also need to complete the PPR course.
At the end of the RYA Day Skipper course you will be confident to skipper a cruising yacht on short passages by day. Students who successfully complete the Day Skipper course are awarded the RYA Day Skipper practical course completion certificate and can charter in non-tidal waters.
Our day skipper practical training is based out of Gouvia Marina in Corfu. We run many courses throughout the year so please get in touch if you are interested in taking part in one of our training courses.
Learning to sail should be fun and Corfu is the ideal place in which to get the most out of your course. The blue skies and warm waters make our RYA courses in Corfu a truly enjoyable experience.
