Day Skipper and Yacht Master courses

Calypso is the perfect Motor Yacht to undertake formal training and helming practice. This is for owners and boaters who are looking for expert instruction on a qualifying course or who simply want to improve their handling skills on a twin engine motor boat. We offer regular courses in association with an RYA Training School for both Yacht-Master and Day Skipper. Both courses are four days aboard Calypso, and offer a fully endorsed and professional practical qualification.

If you are looking to improve your seamanship and boat handling for your own motorboat over 12m, or are thinking of purchasing your own motorboat with twin screws, then a practical RYA approved course could be the next step.

All practical courses include accommodation aboard Calypso for 3 nights and have a maximum of 4 trainees per course. This gives each person their own private cabin and really gives you a feel for life aboard a large Motor Yacht for a sustained period. These courses enable you to get to know the boat and her systems. Food and fuel is included in the price.

One off Helming days are also available which offer intensive one to one training for those wanting to hone their berthing ability. This is with a qualified RYA instructor, and is invaluable for mastering berthing and short quarter maneuvering.
