RYA Shorebased Training & Theory Courses

RYA Basic Navigation and Safety Course

The course provides an introduction to the elementary skills required before taking a small boat to sea, or taking an active part in running a boat.

The course is aimed at a wide audience, including anyone new to sailing, motor boating, power boating, jet skiing, sea angling and diving as well as experienced dinghy and keelboat sailors and inshore racers.

Mindful of the fact that people are increasingly short of time for leisure pursuits we have taken a new approach, aiming to give students an awareness and knowledge of basic navigation techniques and safety in just 16 hours.
