You will then have the weekend to yourself to explore the local area, go to the beach, or brush up on your Theory.  In week 2 we will  then develop your boat handling and skippering skills up to the level required for the RYA Coastal Skipper syllabus with the emphasis on Skippering Ability and Boat Handling under Sail and Power.   .  Following succesful completion of this 2 week Fast Track you will receive the RYA Coastal Skipper Photo License and have the confidence to sail longer passages with your family and friends.
