Essential Navigation & Seamanship course

However you decide to take the course, it offers a great introduction to navigation and safety awareness for new or inexperienced skippers and crew, and those wanting to refresh their skills. In fact it's for 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, Start Yachting and Helmsman courses.

It's a highly informative course with lots of opportunities for you to put your new found knowledge into practice.

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