Course Entry Requirements.

Day Skipper The course assumes no previous knowledge but a background in dingy sailing or other form of boating does help. This course is often oversubscribed but there is no cost involved when reserving a place.  Advice book early.

Yachtmaster. The normal entry requirement is to have completed a Day Skipper Shorebased Course in recent years. Without that background people normally fail to keep up with the work required and drop out before completion. This course has been heavily revised for 2018.

To reserve a place contact us by email, post or telephone.
