This course equips you with enough knowledge to navigate around familiar waters by day. A basic knowledge of lights is also included to introduce you to night cruising. We are continually updating our courses to take into account developments in technology and the electronic navigation aids now available on most cruising boats. In conjunction with the UK Hydrographic Office the RYA has developed a chart plotter specifically for use on training courses, giving you a realistic insight into electronic navigation.
Use of this plotter is an integral part of our Day Skipper shorebased course. We have northern and southern hemisphere versions of the training materials. So, no matter where you are in the world, our course can be tailored to you.
