Marcus led a very informative 14 session online course. I found it most enjoyable and will use many of the lessons learned in the future. Would I recommend it ? Absolutely…..

We understand that people lead busy lives and have other commitments. Missing one session isn’t usually a problem unless it’s the first session. Missing more than one session is not ideal.

We do provide online materials for revision which can normally be used to catchup should you miss a session.

As part of the learning experience, you will be expected to do homework between the classes. This is all done online with the ability to check your answers and get additional support.

Our shore based classes are run from Godalming College. There’s plenty of free parking on site.

There’s no pre-requisite knowledge required for the Day Skipper Theory course, however, some familiarity with boats & boating will help. If you have no experience at all, you might find the Essential Navigation Course a useful intro.

If you have spent any time on the water and are willing to learn, the Day Skipper Theory course takes you step-by-step through the complete range of topics (see the syllabus for more details).
