RYA Essential Navigation & Seamanship (online)


This online course offers a great introduction to navigation and safety awareness for new, inexperienced or rusty skippers and crew. It’s a highly informative course with lots of opportunities for you to put your new found knowledge into practice. Our online version of the course teaches way beyond the formal syllabus, has been designed to dovetail with our practical course instruction and we are therefore happy to accept completion as proof of enough navigation knowledge to take a Day Skipper practical course with us.
