This course is invaluable for learning how to start making decisions onboard a yacht or powerboat and also to help understand what is going on when others take charge. By the end of the course you should have a sufficient knowledge to navigate a yacht or powered craft around familiar waters by day and night. This course is recommended for those wanting to brush up on existing navigation and skippering skills and those going on to do the Day Skipper Practical course on sail or powered vessels.
