Refresh Your Sailing Skills – Two-Day Practical Course

Refresh Your Sailing Skills – Two-Day Practical Course


Sunsail’s two-day yacht refresher course is great for sailors who know the basics but would like a quick refresher before confidently taking to the water once more. Some previous sailing experience is required.

There is no set syllabus, so your skipper will take time to speak with you and understand what you would like to gain from your yacht refresher.

Please note: this course is not an RYA course, and will not give you the qualifications needed to sail in the Mediterranean.

If you wish to gain formal qualifications, please visit the RYA Day Skipper or ICC pages.

This course is also ideal for Day Skippers who have completed qualifications in one of our overseas bases which are non-tidal. The Yacht Refresher weekend will provide knowledge and experience of sailing in tidal waters, giving you a practical feel of the effects of tide and broadening your sailing destinations.


  • Re-learn the basics
  • No set syllabus
  • Takes place most weekends, all year round in the UK
  • Experience sailing in tidal waters
  • Ideal preparation for a sailing holiday abroad
