These videos are also available as an App for the iPhone and iPad – put Westview or Day Skipper or Yachtmaster into the app store search bar. That way you can have the videos on your idevice.

At Westview Sailing we run the Day Skipper shore based course over 7 weeks (one night a week) and one weekend and the Coastal Skipper/Yachtmaster course over 8 weeks (one night a week) and one weekend. Running courses over several weeks allows enough time for the homework and a greater retention of the information than the shorter intensive courses. All Westview students are given access to the tutorial videos for the duration of their course.

We also run the short Range Certifiacte VHF/DSC radio course which we do as a one day course or as a three evening course.

Why not check out our Bookshelf section with recommended reading or Articles by Duncan Wells for Yachting Monthly and Sailing Today Magazine.
