Have you completed your RYA Day Skipper theory with us? Are you looking for a full route to your Day Skipper practical certificate with a view to chartering in the Med or elsewhere?

Sail YSL works with our partners in Greece and Gibraltar to deliver practical RYA Competent Crew and Day Skipper courses in both tidal and non-tidal waters, allowing you to charter a boat of your own for your next holiday.

We are also unique in offering our Greek skippered charters as a Day Skipper preparation week. If you are looking to proceed to your Day Skipper practical course, either immediately following your charter or on another occasion, why not take the stress out of the 5-day continuous assessment by taking a week to become familiar with and practice the required drills without the pressure of pass/fail?

If you choose to do your Day Skipper course with us in the Ionian, combining it with the prep week will give you a head start by scoping out the area before the course. Contact me for information.

Thank you so much for a wonderful holiday and for your patience and diligence in teaching the Day Skipper practical – I learnt so much during those weeks and now really excited to continue the learning and experience journey – so roll on next year :-).


What's next?

Many people are satisfied when they achieve Day Skipper as it allows them to charter in most places in the world. However, if you are more ambitious, then the RYA scheme offers plenty of opportunity for progression. The next step would be the Yachtmaster/Coastal Skipper theory course in preparation for the RYA Coastal Skipper course and/or the RYA/MCA Yachtmaster Coastal or RYA/MCA Yachtmaster Offshore exams.
