Theory Refresher Courses

Course Duration:1-day
Prior Experience:Relevant Theory Course

In response to a growing demand, Sailing Logic now offer 1-day Theory Refresher Courses.

The refresher courses are designed for those who have already completed the RYA theory course and don't want to re-do it, but feel a little rusty. Our 1-day course is an ideal refresher before progressing to the next level, or as a confidence boost ahead of a sailing trip.

Below are the topics most frequently requested, but each course will respond to individual questions.  Obviously the course is only one day and will provide an excellent reminder of the key principles, but does not replace the need to attend the full course to learn the entire syllabus. 

Day Skipper Theory Refresher

The course is also an ideal way to ensure your background knowledge is up to speed before taking the RYA Yachtmaster / Coastal Theory Course. 

Where possible the course is run on the Sunday following the Boat Handling Course, to provide a convenient weekend option.

  • Chartwork - plotting, EP, DR 
  • Tidal Streams - using a tidal atlas
