About the Online RYA Day Skipper Shorebased Course

Do you love the idea of learning navigation and skippers skills but don't have 40 hours free to spend in a classroom? 

This course will give you the skills to confidently read and interpret charts, weather and tides in both the Northern and Southern ​Hemispheres​​​​​​. It provides a fantastic base of knowledge for taking your boat from Sydney along the east coast of Australia.

Why you should do this course

We often head onto the water and circumstances change which make the day more stressful, and less fun, for us and our crew.

This course will help you identify and close some of the gaps in your knowledge base.

Learn to plan, improve your decision making, and be more proactive on the water, ensuring a more enjoyable day.

Course Information

Course Structure

The course is recognised by the Royal Yachting Association (RYA) and follows the Day Skipper Shore based Syllabus. The drive for us to develop a course locally in Sydney was to be able to support the training and development of the East Coast Skippers who wanted real-life case studies. We have included examples for managing the East Australian Current, Wide Bay Bar, the prevailing NE winds to work up the NSW Coast line, avoiding unfavourable tides during their Whitsundays Cruising and much more. The framework of the RYA Course has been used with practical Australian based case studies, pictures and examples wherever possible to ensure you finish the course feeling confident to plan an East Coast adventure.

Course Duration

The course takes around 40 hours in total to complete, but it is structured so you can take it at your own pace.
