For a number of reasons, *and the current Coronavirus situation is a special reason*, some sailors choose e-learning. SailNorth offers both  Dayskipper, Yachtmaster, and Ocean Online in association with Skippers-OnLine (SOL). See both the subject page and the ONLINE page to obtain full sylabus and reduced price details.

Our usual Shorebased courses are classroom based and follow the RYA syllabus and testing. Courses progress over the winter months to allow adequate time to absorb the wide spread of knowledge within the subjects - an unrealistic aim when the theory is combined jointly with intensive practical courses.

At Sail North we have a wide experience sailing varied locations around the UK, Atlantic, Med, and USA. Interaction with other class members, recounting experiences, different methods, problems, anecdotes etc. all make for fun courses, a deeper appreciation, and developing contacts.
