Very popular activity. Places usually run out 68 days before leaving
The RYA Day Skipper Practical course is ideal for aspiring skippers with some yachting experience and basic navigation and sailing skills.
Sailing is about so many things, but being able to sail to new destinations must be pretty near the top of the list. During the five days, our aim is to visit as many different locations as time and weather permit. From the beautiful anchorage in the bay of Porto Fino to the East of Genoa to the wonderful town of Varazze to the West. In addition to those mentioned there are lots of small ports enabling us to practice close quarter boat handling but also have a delicious lunch in a local restaurant.

  • Plan
    Our RYA Day Skipper Practical course will begin by spending the first day making you feel relaxed and ready to learn, your instructor will be able to assess your level of experience and help you improve and develop day by day. Every evening your instructor will spend a few private minutes with you, reviewing the day and sharing with you areas for development. Each day you will notice personal improvement in both skill and understanding.

    We do our best to create a relaxed learning environment where learning becomes fun. We all make mistakes and sailing is one of those activities where no matter how experienced you are, you never ever stop learning.

I moved to Italy with my family 7 years ago and we run a RYA Training Centre in Genoa. I have been sailing since the age of 10, initially on dinghies and then moving on to yachts. My husband, Ian is the course instructor and he is a fully qualified RYA yachtmaster instructor, examiner and with many years of experience.

    Communication with the front office was punctual and clear. Our very trained, professional and empathetic instructor Fabrizio helped us in every phase of the training so that we could get the best possible result. From a technical point of view, which is the focus in such an activity, excellent experience.

    I applied for the competent crew course as a real beginner.
    It's been an amazing experience; Fabrizio, the instructor, is a very well organized person, able to let you learn whatever is in your capabilities.
    I'm glad I got this experience, I'll be more confident with sailboats from now on, and I know that with this RYA course my approach will be more professional
