RYA Essential Navigation & Seamanship Course

Please note all face to face bookings including the classroom version of the Essential Navigation & Seamanship Course are currently postponed in the light of Covid 19 – we are still operating remotely with training by video call or the online option.

Why not look at the online course option instead currently supported with live video tutorials?

ONLINE BOOKING AVAILABLE  – PLEASE SCROLL DOWN THE PAGE

The RYA Essential Navigation & Seamanship Course can usually be taken online or in the classroom.   Please visit our section on online courses page for details of the online course.

The course is suitable for all boaters, both sail & motor, and whether for leisure, fishing or diving.  It is the first theory course in the RYA program.  Its a great complementary course for your Level 2 Powerboat, Start Yachting or the Helmsman practical courses.   The course pack includes an exercise book, a plotter and dividers and access to a training electronic chart plotter.  There is no final ‘exam’ but instead the course is based on continuous assessment.
