Theory Courses

RYA Day Skipper and Coastal Skipper/Yachtmaster Offshore Theory Course

These courses are run on alternate years, in the saloon of House Yacht Tyne, one evening a week, from Autumn until Spring, in accordance with the RYA syllabus. The course runs with a break across Christmas and New Year, each session lasts from 1930 to 2130. A more detailed schedule will be given out at the registration session.

The course fee includes the cost of the RYA student pack, and for non-members temporary membership of the club for the duration of the course.

Many delegates purchase additional text books on navigation, meteorology and international collision regulations during the course. Advice on the best books for the course will be given at the registration session, where you can order them through the club for prompt delivery to the class if you wish. A chart protractor or plotter, and dividers, are needed and can be ordered for you at the same time if you wish.

Places tend to fill up quickly, and we limit the number of course places to ensure all delegates have chart table space and a fair share of instructor support.
