Navigating a vessel in the water is an art. While navigating in coastal waters when you have land in sight may make sense, things are getting harder when you lose sight, due to night hours, weather conditions, and, of course - sailing in the open ocean. This course will give you an introduction of maritime cartography, review of nautical charts and navigation tools, teach you how to plot a course and navigate along it
considering currents, tides and leeways, and application of these terms in modern electronic instruments. This is a classroom course where you will learn and exercise navigation skills. Upon passing both classroom and online course successfully you will be awarded with the Coastal Navigation Endorsement by NauticEd. This endorsement is required in order to get Bareboat Charter Master Certified.
