Essential Navigation & Seamanship Course.


This course run over 2 days in the classroom.

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 is for anyone interested in sailing, motor boating, sea angling or diving, and works well in complementing our on-the- water Powerboat Level 2 and Helmsman courses.

This is a highly informative course with lots of opportunities for you to put your new found knowledge into practice. We use demonstration and practical exercises to help reinforce the information and lots of chances to try out what you've learned.

We place a strong emphasis on 'Rule of the Road' and try to bring this into all aspects of the course.

I really enjoyed the course, I could see the instructor had to hold himself back such was his enthusism for all things Navigation.
The constant referal back to Rule of the Road really sent the info home and it was presented in layers which is a great way to build up the knowlege.
The Meteorology was very thorough, I have studied Meteorology and Climate Science at quite a high level and was very impressed with the delivery.
The coffee was good also!!
I'll be back soon for more..

This course is very good if you are learning Powerboat it fills in all the detail.
Great! I recommend it .

This was a very informative Introduction to navigation, Richard explained the essentials and then expanded on them in a way that left me wondering how we had covered so much information in just two days. The training centre is very well equiped but earthy and grounded just like the staff. We really enjoyed our course's and are now moving through to attain Yachtmaster in the future.
