This is the official handbook supporting the RYA Day Skipper Handbook Sail and is ideal for anyone looking to brush up on their knowledge to this level. It gives great practical and detailed advice on key skills, expanding on the course companion notes.

Being a good skipper is not difficult; it requires essential skills, knowledge, experience, patience, good communication and at times a sense of humour!

This book is engagingly written and highly illustrated with the aim of equipping you with that essential knowledge and set of skills to help you build up your experience.

It leads you through practical advice on Day Skippering in three logical sections:

  • Practical Skills
  • Navigation & Passage Making
  • Safety

It covers all the theoretical and practical aspects of the RYA Day Skipper Sail syllabus and gives you all you need to know to take a small yacht on a short passage safely.

In addition to the practical advice on aspects of Day Skippering, extensive focus is given to safety planning skills such as life-saving signals, simple engine repair and preparation for bad weather.
