This course 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 an excellent preparatory course if you are planning on doing your RYA Day Skipper. We will accept this as a minimum requirement for the RYA Day Skipper practical course, rather than the Day Skipper theory.

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