During this course students will learn the principles of boat handling, rules of the road, sailing, crewing, navigation and watch keeping. You will also learn rope work, knots, rigging, maintenance and seamanship skills.
After successful completion of the SAS Day Skipper course you will be able to operate a sail or power vessel under 24m at sea from sunrise to sunset. Local waters are defined as 15 nautical miles from the skippers home port, or 25 miles from their home port provided they are no more than 15 nautical miles from an approved safe haven.
