RYA Essential Navigation & Seamanship
includes plotter and dividers

Beginners introduction to navigation 

This short online course is an ideal accompaniment to the beginner practical courses such as Keelboat Levels 1, 2 & 3, Powerboat Level 2, Competent Crew and Helmsman. It's a great starting point for anyone who goes to sea.

It takes roughly 6 hours to complete the various modules. But most people work through them at their own pace. Day Skipper theory students find it useful as an introduction to the more in-depth winter Day Skipper theory course.
