Essential Navigation and Safety Course

This course offers students an introduction to practical navigation skills to enable you plan your short passage safely. Both traditional and electronic plotting skills are introduced and developed throughout the course and  the course is relevant for people using power and sail craft. No previous experience is needed to attend this course, a student pack will be issued to all students and include a chart plotting tool. This course is also the benchmark of theoretical knowledge for RYA Instructors teaching within the smallboat schemes. It is therefore the perfect course for instructors to ensure they are equipped both in knowledge and resources to deliver coastal theory on these courses.
