navigation theory course

Weekend navigation course

Learn the essential navigation skills with two days of intensive tuition delivered by an expert navigator.

Theory courses and real world navigation skills are often very different things. Our skippers are true experts who navigate expedition yachts far off the beaten track, often in difficult semi charted parts of the world such as Iceland and Spitsbergen.  To learn usable, real world navigation skills, these are the people you have to be learning from. At Rubicon 3, we use ten essential skills that we will share with you on this course. These are the  ten skills that will be the foundation of your navigation capabilities.

 

Who is this for?

  • Anyone new to navigation
  • Anyone who has done RYA Day Skipper or Coastal Skipper and needs some real-world training

 

Do I need to attend this course before joining a Rubicon 3 sailing expedition?

  • No. You will get lots of navigation training and experience on board. However, if you can attend one of these weekends you will benefit hugely once you join the yachts

 

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

  • Absolutely yes. This course is designed to share our skills and knowledge with everyone

We operate a strict no smoking policy

The smoking of any form of tobacco is forbidden on board or on the dock next to the boat. We also very strongly discourage the smoking of any tobacco at any time between the start and end date as the smell comes on-board into confined living space. The use of e-cigarettes is fine.
