Past event:   Electronic Navigation course   Course runs for two weekends
Sat 1st November 2003  Start: 09:00  

Course content

(Non-RYA course)

This two weekend course covers the use and limitations of modern electronic aids to navigation, including G.P.S. Chart plotters, "Yeoman" P.C. based navigation and tidal programs. It includes hands on practice of electronic position fixing, tide calculations, passage planning and simulated passage making. The course is equally suited to both sail and powerboat users. With the increasing use of modern electronic aids to navigation such as G.P.S. knowledge of how to use it safely and correctly is essential. The course assumes prior completion of the RYA Day Skipper course or the equivalent experience and is intended to be both enjoyable and informative. No study in the student's own time will be required. There are no assessments during or at the end of the course. No completion certificate is issued to students who complete the course.


Duration: 2 Weekends Times: 0900hrs - 1700hrs Sat/Sun.
