RYA Tidal Conversion course

RYA Tidal Conversion course


The RYA Tidal Conversion course is aimed specifically at students who have completed their RYA Day Skipper qualification at a non-tidal location and need to convert that qualification into one that enables them to sail safely in tidal waters around the world.

Without a Tidal Conversion qualification, students with a pre-existing Day Skipper qualification gained in non-tidal waters would not be able to take a yacht out in tidal waters. This limits the variety of destinations around the world in which you can charter a yacht and prevents you from sailing in some truly spectacular locations.
