Coastal Navigation – Basic

Sail Canada has introduced two new Coastal Navigation standards: Basic and Intermediate. These two standards used to be one course, however they have now been divided into two, more comprehensive, standards.

Sail Nelson is hoping to offer the Basic Coastal Navigation course in the Fall of 2019. However, in the meantime should you wish to complete the course, you may do so online.
