Day Skipper Motor
The Day Skipper Motor syllabus prepares you to skipper a yacht:
- Preparation for sea
- Deck work
- Rules of the road
- Maintenance and repair work
- Emergency situations
- Yacht handling under power
- Passage making
- Night cruising
- And how to command your crew
One evening of the course will involve a night training exercise. Night training usually takes place towards the end of the week, when everyone feels very comfortable around the yacht. The night training usually takes you into Palma harbour where the lights of the capital will both bewilder and enchant you .. a truly amazing experience.
In order to achieve the Day Skipper Motor licence, you also need to have a good level of theory knowledge, we recommend the Skippers Online Day Skipper Theory course. Contact the Aigua Sea School team for more information.
Alternatively, we can run Day Skipper theory weekends either side of most practical courses. We refer to the Day Skipper theory weekend/Day Skipper sail practical combined courses as the ‘COMBO’. Please do discuss this with us as it is a great opportunity to achieve the complete Day Skipper certification in one 9-day programme.
