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.

I moved to Italy with my family 3 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 is the course instructor and he is a fully qualified RYA yachtmaster instructor and examiner with many years of 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
