Two days of intensive tuition which will give you the core skills you need to navigate via the Sun, moon, planets and stars.

It is magical to be able to navigate a yacht using just the sun, moon, planets, and stars.  In this intensive two day course, an expert instructor will help you get to grips with celestial navigation. There is no complex mathematics and anyone with a basic understanding of coastal navigation can attend. By the end of the course you'll have learnt how to plot a position from observing the sun and will be perfectly placed to develop this knowledge into using the planets, moon or stars.

Who is this for?

  • Anyone wishing to get a really solid understanding of celestial navigation
  • This is also ideal for anyone preparing for  the RYA Yachtmaster Ocean qualifying passage or theory exam.

Do I need to have any prior knowledge of celestial navigation?

  • Absolutely not. So long as you have a basic understanding of coastal navigation and charts, you are ready to come and learn celestial navigation

I am not signed up to the Rubicon 3 expedition. Can I join this course?
