Online theory courses

The course

During the Corona Virus lockdown we are able to provide our customers with either an online course or a mix of home learning, video tutorials, online exercises and 1:1 sessions with an instructor via Zoom or Skype. Our instructors are available online during weekdays from 0900 to 1900 and by telephone at other times if necessary. There are no pre-course requirements for this RYA Day Skipper theory course, but some sailing knowledge is helpful. At the end of the course there is an assessment via Zoom and an RYA Certificate will be issued on satisfactory completion of the course.  

This course is provided by Premier Sailing using original videos and online quizes plus resources from the RYA.  We also supply the plotter and dividers if required, indeed we supply everything needed to successfully complete the course.
