The navigation of a yacht is taught over 10 days. The first 5 days is the Dayskipper theory and the second 5 days is the Yachtmaster theory. If you haven’t done the Dayskipper theory you will find it almost impossible to do the course. Often people underestimate just how much is covered in the Dayskipper theory.
