Navigation Courses…a lot more than just navigation!

 On Wed 22 October we begin our winter series of navigation courses...just like we have done for the last 30 years.  But......what is a navigation course? It is much more than just navigation - There are many things we need to learn about –weather, tides, safety afloat, buoys and lights, rules, charts and chartwork, electronic navigation, pilotage and of course putting all the information together to form a passage plan. These are the elements of a navigation course and it is the perfect platform to study all of these areas and help you become more proficient afloat.
