The qualifications that enable you to Charter and operate a vessel in foreign waters f you are keen to gain the Day Skipper certificates as quickly as possible then the nine day combined course is for you. Four days of shorebased training and five days on the water are interleaved to create a complete day skipper course.

During the course all accommodation and meals are provided on board on board the yacht. Shorebased tuition takes place in our comfortable classroom within the marina, while practical training is carried out in Ipswich and around the picturesque Essex Suffolk coastline.
