RYA Essential Navigation
The RYA Essential Navigation and Seamanship Theory course is a great way to develop your knowledge and understanding of subjects like charts, tides, safety and distress alerting as well as basic navigation. It is aimed at those sailing close to their home port and is perfect for those who have just completed their RYA Powerboat level 2 or are about to do so.
The course lasts two days and runs from 9am to 5pm each day.
INSTRUCTOR – STUDENT RATIO
Typically there will be a maximum of 6 students on the course, usually less.
No prior boating experience is necessary and we are happy for a child over 12 to undertake the course and they tend to have great fun taking it – and assisting the adults they are doing it alongside!
IS THERE AN END OF COURSE ASSESSMENT?
No, the Instructor runs through each of the modules of the course ensuring that you understand each as you progress.
The course costs £200 per person and includes a full RYA Essential Navigation and Seamanship Theory Course pack, course notes and RYA Training Charts. You also get a plotter/dividers pack and course completion certificate.
