Halcyon Yachts is pleased to announce that they will be running another Yacht Delivery Skipper’s Development Week in April 2022. It is an intensive course that will focus on giving the students essential skills and knowledge in preparation to work as a yacht delivery skipper.

The instructor for the course is one of our senior yacht delivery skippers. The course will be held aboard a beautiful Sweden Yachts 42 sailing from Lough Foyle and around the Inner and Outer Hebrides. The yacht is fully coded (CAT 2) and is well equipped for offshore sailing.

Halcyon Yachts Skipper, Dan, says, “This is a fantastic but challenging area to learn and hone your skills, with fast tides and fresh winds the situation will command even the most experienced sailors attention.”

The course is aimed at sailors who have already experienced RYA training and who are looking to widen their knowledge in preparation to work as a yacht delivery skipper. Director of Halcyon Yachts, Pete Green, says, “This is a fantastic opportunity to sail and learn from one of the best yacht delivery skippers in the business. Dan will put you through your paces and will share all of his tips and tricks along the way. If you are looking to become a professional yacht delivery skipper then this course will be perfect in helping you achieve your goal.”

Bruce Crawford, a previous student on the course, says “I did this course with Dan in April ‘21. The boat, Coriolis, is immaculate, and really well equipped. Dan is a great instructor and mentor and raconteur with a great sense of humour, and some great stories. I learned loads about skippering a boat, and about the expectations of Halcyon and their clients. The course is of great benefit to aspiring skippers whether they intend to do deliveries with Halcyon or wish to hone their leadership and management soft skills. The area around Islay, Jura and Northern Ireland are challenging waters. Time spent in planning yields great rewards of beautiful, remote anchorages, and amazing wildlife.  If you are in any doubt, I had a great week.”
