• RYA Essential Navigation $295 AUD

This course is a basic introductory course aimed for small boat operators, recreational fishers, small keel, and trailer sailor skippers and small powerboat skippers, but it can practically benefit any water user. It has even been known to be useful for windsurfers, dinghy sailors, kite surfers and canoeists as it gives greater understanding of what those around you are supposed to be doing, and what the various navigation marks mean. This is a great entry level course for those who are not willing to commit to a full day skipper proagram or have a tight budget.The course is hosted by the RYA, but NAVatHOME Australia will be able to support you through out the course.

The Essential Navigation and Seamanship Course is an elearning online course with some supporting pysical materials which we shall post to you via express post the next business day. Essential navigation graduates are able to claim credit for their course and upgrade to DaySkipper at a reduced rate. If your focus is to attain your yachtmaster, we would reccomend not doing the essential navigtion course, and instead consider the Yachtmaster FastTrack course.
