Dolphins in the Celtic Sea

RYA Yachtmaster Ocean Theory

5-Day Course

"This is the best RYA theory course. I don't understand why so few people do it!"

Next course planned for New Year 2018

Perhaps GPS makes us think it's unnecessary to learn about celestial navigation these days, but aren't you fascinated to know how mariners of old navigated by the Sun and the stars?

"John is a first class instructor who presents what at times seems daunting material in a clear & easy-to-follow way. The online resources between Saturdays was excellent." Dave

  • Learn about astro-navigation & ocean meteorology
  • Be qualified to skipper a yacht in all parts of the world
  • Know how to navigate if your GPS fails
  • Be cool with a sextant!

"As always, the course was presented in very strong practical application terms. Celestial navigation appeared daunting, but was presented in a very enjoyable and understandable manner."
