5 Day Skipper Theory RYA Theory courses given by our School can be from one student to a maximum of four. Most theory courses take place in our School's air-conditioned classroom at Olhos de Agua near Vilamoura as shown in the photographs above, lunch is included in the fee for the course and we have it in a very good restaurant about 5 minutes walk from the classroom. There is a Raymarine C70 chart plotter in the classroom which clients can use for learning how to use a GPS chart plotter. Course Completion Certificates will be issued on successful completion of these courses and of the examination during the second half of the last day of each course.

It is suitable for beginners. There is no examination or assessment but to complete the course students must have taken a full and active part in the course and have an understanding of the principles taught during the course.

I am excited to be a part of the GetMyBoat movement in making boats more accessible and affordable to others. I hope to get out on the water more and help boating grow.
