Normally, RYA Day Skipper classes (practical course) should take place after you have served some time as an able crew member and proven to yourself that you can command a dinghy, steer a course and handle the sails (i.e. do without hesitation any manoeuvre and spontaneously react to wind shifts). RYA concentrates in safety aspects (including MOB exercises), navigation on-the-spot, harbour manoeuvres and yacht logistics.
