This course is very popular and is the grounding for progression to Yachtmaster and beyond. The course content is varied and you will learn about the “Rules of the Road”, weather, the buoyage system, practical chart work and tides. We also cover safety, pilotage and passage planning together with some electronic navigation systems.

This is a 5 day course and we can run the course to suit the students needs.

As the title indicates, the course is designed as a knowledge base for students to progress, competently, to sea in day light hours.

We offer the choice of 5 day intensive, over two and a half weekends or as an evening class. There will be 2 assessments, I generally set the first one half way through and the finalĀ one on the last day. This course is suitable for either power or sail.
