Day Skipper Sail Combo: combine theory and practical in one course
Day Skipper Sail Combo Course
What is the Day Skipper Sail Combo?
At Aigua Sea School we believe the RYA Day Skipper Practical Sailing course and navigation theory syllabus is the best in the world at this level, so we have developed an ‘Aigua Special’ and we call it our Day Skipper COMBO. We run the course over nine consecutive days:
- two days of navigation theory training (shorebased)
- followed by five days of practical sail training (onboard)
- and finishing off with two days of navigation theory training (shorebased)
…completing the Day Skipper/Watch Leader syllabus.
Why Sail with Aigua?
The coastal waters of Mallorca are stunning; white sandy anchorages, majestic mountain ranges, crystal clear waters, and what better way to explore them than by yacht, sailed there by you! You will drop anchor in secluded bays and navigate through islands, hop into harbours and pop into ports as you learn and develop your sailing skills. Later on in the week, when the crew are settled well into the yacht, you will join in with the night sail, preparing pilotage using buoyage and light houses to lead your way home.
Your comfort is well taken care of too, at Aigua Sea School we consider the make-up of the crew, and cabin allocation, to ensure that everyone enjoys the privacy they prefer.
Upon successful completion of the Day Skipper Sail Combo course you may be eligible for an International Certificate of Competence (ICC).
There will be some theory sessions on-board to satisfy the RYA guidelines on tuition hours to cover the theory syllabus. In the evenings, predominantly on ‘parts of the boat’ and ‘safety and seamanship’ that we believe are great when taught on-board, as you are there, you’re in it and you can touch all the bits! We find this is a great way to learn the skills of navigation in the classroom and further the new knowledge by putting it into practice in the very next days.
As an addition you can also add the online VHF DSC Marine Radio course to the programme and make your Day Skipper Sail Combo training adventure a ten-day feast of learning and new experiences, plus a lot of fun.

My wife and I took the Day Skipper Sail course with Nathan. We went in a little nervous but by the end of the week, we learned so much that we felt fully confident in our first upcoming charter. Nathan is a very professional and skilled and patient instructor. The staff was accommodating with very…
Brilliant sailing school I did the Day Skipper course for 5 days and the teacher Hilly was amazing. Learned so much over the 5 days and would love to return to do another course in the future
Excellent experience! The entire organization is professional and helpful. They take the extra steps to make it a great time while learning in an environment that is second to none. Will surely be attending another training here in the near future.
Excellent experience, Aigua does a great job of balancing the line between learning but also enjoying the experience. Nathan is a great instructor!
