A 5 day classroom based course usually taken in our purpose built training centre in the marina complex, A1 is the only sailing school in North Mallorca to offer a marina based classroom facility.
Covering most aspects of navigation, safety, seamanship and the use of GPS, students learn how to use a chart and plotter correctly, take bearings, plot fixes, work out courses to steer, use waypoints and recognise potential situations to avoid.
There is no previous experience required however having been on a sailing boat is a useful advantage, the RYA Dayskipper theory book is worth reading before the course.
We also offer this course back to back with the practical Dayskipper as a COMBINED COURSE, gettting the theory into practice straight away often makes it stick better and gives the student a chance to practise newly learn skills onboard a yacht.
Successful students receive the RYA Dayskipper Theory certificate, there is a formal exam for this course.
