RYA Theory courses are a great way to get to know the nitty gritty but very practically applicable details of everything to do with sailing and navigation.
For more advanced courses such as RYA Day Skipper courses and above, it is highly recommend to do the preceding theory course before coming on the practical course. Doing it will greatly help your chances of passing and improve your practical learning experience while on the course. We dont have time to teach your theory during the practical courses but we have lots of time to use the knowledge and put it into application!
While we can teach RYA theory courses at the yacht club in our classroom, we find that doing the course online seems to be one of the best options as its so much more convenient, has a lot of great material in an easy to use format that you can access for a long time allowing you to go at your own pace, has great online support from real instructors and most importantly saves you from spending those precious holiday days off work in the classroom!
We recommend Skipper’s Online school for RYA Day Skipper Theory and RYA Coastal and Yachtmaster Theory. Here is a link to what the course looks like: https://vimeo.com/189781517
