Sunsail’s Level 2 Sailing Courses are designed for sailors with a reasonable amount of previous sailing experience who wish to bring their skills up to a recognised intermediate standard.
With a Level 2 sailing qualification, sailors are considered competent to charter their own yacht at almost all of Sunsail’s incredible locations around the globe and to participate in Level 2 Flotillas.
At this level a huge selection of sailing destinations opens up to you and the possibilities become ever more exciting. Level 2 Sailing Courses build on the foundations of a student’s previous theoretical and practical knowledge of sailing.
The RYA Day Skipper Practical Course teaches students how to skipper a yacht by day or night in familiar waters, and develops pilotage, navigation and boat handling skills. The course provides a comprehensive introduction to chart work, navigation and meteorology, providing students with the knowledge required to make good on-board decisions.
The RYA Day Skipper Combined Course is designed for students who want to combine the theoretical and practical sides of the Day Skipper qualification into one nine day course. It is suitable for sailors with a reasonable amount of previous experience who want to achieve significant progress in a short amount of time.
Sunsail’s Tidal Conversion Course is a Level 2 Sailing Course intended for those who have taken their RYA Day Skipper qualification at one of Sunsail’s non-tidal overseas bases. This conversion course qualifies students to sail in tidal waters around the world which they would not otherwise be able to do.
