ISA Shorebased Navigation courses cover all of the skills and knowledge that you will need to plan and undertake any trip that you can imagine. These skills are best introduced in the relative comfort of an classroom where you have the opportunity to practice and master them before using them afloat. While these courses can be run over several full days many are run as evening classes over several months. The perfect way to use those long winter evenings.
There are 4 courses available.
Coastal Navigation for Small Boats
Suitable for sailors using open keelboats, dinghies and catamarans as well as powerboaters who are starting to go further afield.
For sailors and motorboaters who will be cruising on coastal passages around Ireland and our islands.
