SUMMER 2021 update – Much of our business over the summer is at sea therefore we will be processing online course bookings from 1st September. If you require this course earlier you may wish to book with another provider. Our apologies for this.
The RYA Essential Navigation and Seamanship Course runs as an online course for £79.00.
This course offers a great introduction to navigation and safety awareness for new or inexperienced skippers and crew, and those wanting to refresh their skills.
The course will suit anyone interested in sailing, motor boating, sea angling or diving, and works well in complementing our on-the-water training, such as the Powerboat Level 2 course.
You will find many interactive exercises to help reinforce the information and lots of chances to try out what you’ve learned.
Course topics include:
- Charts and Publications
- Engine checks
- Tidal awareness
- Visual and electronic navigation
- Rules of the road
- Weather forcasts
- Passage planning
You will receive a course pack which includes a chart, plotter, dividers, course handbook, and exercises.
