RYA Essential Navigation & Seamanship
includes plotter and dividers

Great online introduction to navigation for all boaters

This highly informative course works well with on-the-water training such as Keelboat Levels 1 to 3, Powerboat Level 2, Competent Crew and Helmsman courses. It's a great starter course for anyone who goes to sea.

It takes roughly 6 hours to complete the modules but you can work through them at your own pace. It's also a relaxed way to make a start on the winter Day Skipper theory topics and provides a useful refresher too.
