Sail Canada has introduced two new Coastal Navigation standards: Basic Coastal Navigation and Intermediate Coastal Navigation. These two standards were recently divided to create two, more comprehensive, standards.
Coastal Navigation is an essential part of your seamanship toolbox. It is essential for you to know where you are going, how toget there safely, and what to do when plans change! A Coastal Navigation certification is also a requirement for many charter companies. If you are hoping to one day sail off into the sunset, this course is for you!
Classroom Study: The hands-on classroom Coastal Navigation course will run one evening per week for seven weeks. Participants will learn the basics of navigation including plotting, labelling, tide & current table calculations, bearings, fixes, and much more!
