RYA Online Essential Navigation and Safety Course

RYA Online Essential Navigation and Safety Course

This course is applicable for anyone interested in sailing, power boating, motor boating or jet skiing. The course is a basic introduction to navigation, seamanship and safety and falls below Day Skipper Theory within the RYA training scheme. It is ideal for users of small boats such as RIBs and dayboats. Its also a great course for those who are currently crewing on yachts and want to learn a little more before eventually progressing to the full RYA Day Skipper courses.
 

About the Course:

The RYA Essential Navigation and Seamanship Course aims to introduce the basic concepts of inshore navigation and safety in an easy to understand and enjoyable format. During the course you will be introduced to the basics of navigation including tidal awareness, charts, almanacs and the use of electronic navigation aids such as GPS. You will be taught about harbour entry and departure pilotage including knowledge of buoyage and a basic understanding of the Collision Regulations so you know who has right of way! Time will also be spent looking at sources of weather information and what impact this could have on your passage. Towards the end of the course you will put all this information together to plan an actual passage. You will also learn more about what safety equipment you should carry and how it is used.

Course duration:

We estimate that this online course will take 10-16 hours.
