Basic

Navigation

An introduction to navigation and safety awareness for new, inexperienced or rusty skippers and crew. This course is for anyone new to sailing, motor boating including RIBs and other small powerboats, sea angling and diving as well as experienced dinghy and keelboat sailors and inshore racers.

This course is the perfect introduction or refresher for anyone going afloat on inshore waters, and a stepping stone to the more in-depth Day Skipper shore based course. It also complements on-the-water training such as the Intermediate Powerboat, Start Yachting, Helmsman or Day Skipper courses.
