Keen to learn about navigation but short on time?  The RYA Essential Navigation & Seamanship course takes place over a weekend and is a great introduction to navigation and safety awareness.  It is a perfect course for beginners and even reasonably experienced boaters who want to spend a couple of days picking the brain of an experienced Mariner.  The course content covers both power-boating, sailing and would benefit anyone spending time on the water, including fishermen and divers.

Navigation & Seamanship topics include:

  • Chartwork
  • Emergency procedures
  • Buoyage
  • Electronic navigation
  • Anchoring
  • Rules of the road (International and Canadian)
  • Tide

You will receive a course pack which includes a chart, plotter, dividers, course handbook, exercises and an electronic chart plotter CD.
