We have another of our RYA Day Skipper Theory five day courses starting in a few weeks time, running from Wednesday 17th April to Sunday 21st April 2013. With the current weather many are questioning the advantages of going to sea at this time year, so this is the perfect opportunity to sneak in a crafty bit of training and come and do some pre-season brushing up on the dark arts of navigation! If you have ever wanted to know more about understanding chart symbols such as the common chart annotations above, or perhaps would like to be more comfortable with your rules of the road, your buoyage and navigation, safety etc, then this is a great way to learn it all.
The course pack includes the RYA training charts and a copy of the RYA digital Plotter, as well as the exercises we go through as part of the learning process, and the course will leave you feeling confident and comfortable about how to navigate using paper and electronic charts, as well as what information you need to remember from the vast array of different sources available, and where and how to look the rest of it up.
We have one or two spaces left for the April course - we teach a maximum of five students per course so that everyone has plenty of room and plenty of time to ask questions, and the cost is £395 including the RYA pack.
