RYA Yachtmaster and Day Skipper courses are run as weekly evening classes over the winter (October to March/April). The Day Skipper course is a comprehensive introduction to cruising for inexperienced skippers. The Yachtmaster course provides advanced training for more experienced skippers building on the Day Skipper course. Bookings for the 2018/2019 courses have now closed.

The next Yachtmaster course starts on Wednesday 2nd October 2019, 7-9pm. The Day Skipper course starts Thursday 3rd October 2019, 7-9pm. The cost of either course was £275 for AYC members (£295 for non-members) in 2018/2019 - the price for the 2019/2020 courses will be confirmed nearer the time. This includes the student pack and training almanac, tea/coffee. It does not include Portland plotter and dividers (although we will be able to provide these at a very competitive price), pencils, notebooks etc.
