RYA Day Skipper and RYA Coastal Skipper/Yachtmaster Offshore Shore-based Courses
Are you interested in the RYA Day Skipper or RYA Coastal Skipper/Yachtmaster Offshore theory courses? We had to cancel our planned Yachtmaster Offshore classroom-based course as we were one person short to make the course viable. These are difficult courses to organise because of booking an instructor and fixing dates over 5-6 days or equivalent. We are now operating a waiting list so let the SYC Training Officer know if you are interested in the classroom-based option.
New Online Option!! We can also currently offer the RYA Day Skipper and RYA Coastal Skipper/Yachtmaster Offshore theory course online. This is a very flexible way to learn anywhere and at any time which includes a fully interactive computer/Ipad/Smartphone-based course, all course materials and full access to a Yachtmaster Instructor throughout the course. Each course costs just £225 for SYC members (normal price £295) and is available for 12 months after registration. At least two people are needed to qualify for the discounted rate (each can study a different course). Please contact the SYC Training Officer if you are interested in the online option.
