About the course
- Day Skipper Tidal* (practical)
- Minimum age: 16
- Pre-course Requirements: 5 days at sea, 100 miles, 4-night hours on board a sailing yacht. Navigation and theory to the level of Day Skipper standard. We recommend you do the shore-based course beforehand.
- Course runtime: five days sailing, one day off
This hands-on course is very practical with lots of sailing. You’ll even have time for lunchtime swims, plenty of downtime to enjoy the sun and sociable evening meals ashore; not forgetting the chance to visit our Beach Club on your day off for some water sports or relaxation.
Our tuition boat tends to visit the same harbours as our Flotilla but with a bit more sailing in between, so you get the social benefits of the Flotilla and our evening entertainments.
We recommend you complete the Day Skipper theory course before leaving the UK which you can do online. The instructor will be on board your yacht for five full days of sailing and you’ll be sailing long hours together with some night sailing.
