Club Yachting’s Guarantee

Club Yachting understands how important it is important to students that you pass your Day Skipper course. We haven't dropped our standards - you still have to complete all the elements of the course, so we can't guarantee you will pass - but what we do is promise to do everything we can by reviewing our courses, number of persons on board and now GUARANTEE:
  • A maximum of 4 persons on board our 12m sailing yachts (unless you book the yacht for sole use which means we can go to the RYA licensed maximum of 5 persons)
  • Your own berth - who likes to share
  • A Second Chance for RYA Day Skipper Practical sail courses if you do not pass first time (subject to the conditions below) by joining us for a extra time

Terms and Conditions for the Club Yachting Second Chance for Day Skippers

If you do not manage to complete your RYA Day Skipper during the original course we will give you an extra course free if:
