See the below dates for the 4-day course (generally run Thursday to Sunday or Monday to Thursday) and the split weekend course dates. Split weekenders are still four days but run over two weekends.

This course is usually run alongside our RYA Start Motor Cruising and RYA Helmsman's Courses. This means different family members can train at different levels on the same boat at the same time.
