Day Skipper All-In-One

We can prepare you to safely and competently skipper a yacht, even if you have limited, or no previous experience and get you ready for the perfect holiday with family or friends.

We’ve designed two packages which will enable you to obtain an ICC (International Certificate of Competency). The ICC is an EU wide certificate and is the qualification that most yacht charter companies in the Mediterranean and further afield will look for. Our programmes will not only teach you the necessary skills, it'll be great fun and with some excellent discounts on offer shouldn't be too sore on the pocket either!

Option 1: Only have limited yachting experience or none at all?

Communication at Sea – VHF Licence

VHF Licences are a legal requirement to operate a VHF radio set and our VHF SRC Course is certified by the Department of the Marine. In addition to gaining this all-important qualification, our course will teach you the ins and outs of routine communication, how to summon help efficiently in an emergency and will ensure you’re confident to communicate at sea. We have a reduced price of €189 (reduced from €209) for programme participants.

Sea Survival Course

Our RYA/ISAF Sea Survival Course will prepare you for any eventuality at sea. The course covers distress and survival techniques before a practical session where you’ll experience handling, boarding and using a life raft for a reduced price of €239, usually €299.
