Essential Navigation and SeamanshipOnline Course

This is a basic course covering navigation, pilotage and a number of topics all designed to make your boating safer and more fun. There is no pre course knowledge required and it is ideal for those engaged in rib, diving or fishing activities.

The course includes a student pack and we offer it online so that you can go through the teaching process at a speed as fast or slow as you want and also do the work when it’s convenient to you.

The course should take around 6 hours to complete and is for you if you are a new or inexperienced skipper or crew, whether you’re a sailor or motor boater. There will be something in it for everyone.

The online course contains lots of interactive exercises to help reinforce the information and lots of chances to try out what you’ve learned. There’s a support facility by phone or email if you have a problem during the course.

The cost including the pack is just £79
