I am looking at the option of getting my husband qualified to RYA day skipper
level, for motor
cruisers, as a gift for his Birthday. He has no experience at present.
After doing some initial research
I can see that there are lots of variants for different vessels and I am finding it quite confusing. Please could you tell me what are the courses that he MUST take to meet this level and what courses are RECOMMENDED in addition to these? What are the time frames and logistical options for each of these (i.e. over X number of days, eLearning etc)?
Finally, do you think that it is possible to do these courses abroad as part of a holiday? I'm thinking possibly the Mediterranean
as this is probably where we would eventually charter
a boat once he is qualified over the coming years (until we inevitably get a boat!).
Thank you in advance for your help!
