5 days of navigation theory can be quite an undertaking for anyone who is not familiar no confident with charts, buoyage, rules of the road, safety, not to mention being in a classroom environment with exams!!!
At OneOcean Sea School our aim is to educate, inspire learning through explanation, demonstration, instructing and coaching. Having been through the RYA scheme ourselves understand what it is to be a student in a learning environment.
Each day we run through a part of the syllabus giving the student the opportunity to do exercises relating to each part of the syllabus. By the end of the course the student is tested on these in the form of two assessments, general assessment covering Rules of The Road, Safety, Pilotage and Meteorology, the second paper covering Chartwork. Nothing too onerous or taxing.
It is a most enjoyable course, worth taking if you have done your Powerboat Level 2 Course or RYA Competent Crew sailing course and look to progress your skills and enjoyment of seafaring.
So, well done to Kate and James on completing their Day Skipper Theory Course. Excellent students who grasped the concepts quickly.
