What is a Day Skipper Qualification
The Day Skipper qualification confirms that the successful candidate has the knowledge needed to skipper a yacht on shorter, coastal cruises during daylight. The Royal Yachting Association administers the qualification, although most of the training is carried out by private companies.
Other Qualifications I have in this area include:

- Royal Yachting Association – Practical Sailing Course – Competent Crew Qualification
