RYA Day Skipper (Coastal / Tidal) Sailing Course in Scotland Course Information


The RYA Day Skipper (Coastal/Tidal) Course allows the holder to receive the ICC International Certificate of Competence.    It is also accepted by many insurance companies if you wish to own a boat, but more importantly gives you the skills and knowledge to take charge of a yacht with family or friends on-board.


The courses are 5 Days & Nights / Full Board (Mon-Fri) with Check-In/ Arrival from 1830hrs on Sundays, at our LargsCentre.   Each night is spent on board in cabins, at a different island / location / marina, in the Firth of Clyde & Islands sailing area.   Sailing exercises take place during the day, and there is plenty of opportunity to visit local attractions and go ashore to visit islands and villages.


Couples will always get a Private Cabin (at no extra cost) and individual females will always have a choice of a completely separate berth, or sharing a separated twin with another female.   There are normally Five Persons + 1 RYA Yachtmaster® Instructor, per yacht - with up to 5 yachts departing each week (Sun-Fri), and weekend (Fri-Sun).   Advance booking is strongly advised.


the Day Skipper is designed as an enjoyable

sailing week, as well as an internationally-recognised training course

Where Do We Go? On a RYA Day Skipper (Coastal / Tidal) Sailing Course in Scotland from ScotSail?


One of the great advantages of a ScotSail® Day Skipper Course or Experience, is that you and your crew can choose where you want to go.


A typical course or experience, be it a week or 3-weekends' sailing, will entail leaving our centre at Largs Yacht Haven and engaging in sailing activities and training during the day, whilst en route to a destination. You will likely cover many tens of miles up to 100+ miles per week, and you will also have the opportunity to participate in an exciting 4-hour night sail!


You and your crew will be completely involved in the decisions about where to travel to - and how to get there.   This is all part of the course, is vital learning and all part of the fun!   There are plenty of places to travel to - Isle of Arran, Kyles and Isle of Bute, Rothesay, Tartbert, Portavadie, Holy Loch, Rhu, Loch Long and Loch Riddon to name just a few - you can't explore it all in just one week! 


Experience stunning mountains, castles, whales, dolphins, seals and birdlife - even sail past Royal Navy submarines and other interesting marine traffic too!
