An SA Sailing (SAS) Day Skipper is qualified to skipper a sail boat on inland waters during daylight hours at sea from sunrise to sunset, in local waters. A Day Skipper is also qualified to skipper a power boat under 100 tons on inland waters. This course gives a sound grounding in Coastal Navigation and Yacht Management. It is designed for students who are competent to crew on a yacht.

The Day Skipper practical component is taught on a Miura. The success of the course is indicated by the number of our students who now own and skipper their own yachts overseas or in South Africa.

The SAS requirements for the Day Skipper ticket are as follows:

  1. SAMSA SRC Radio License
  2. At least 16 years of age.
  3. An eye test including colour vision (details on the SAS website)
  4. 200 miles logged on a sailing vessel as an active member of crew.
  5. 2 night hours on watch.
