Coastal Navigation

By joining the Coastal Navigation course you can learn to navigate along the European coastal waters. Also this course is very useful if you are planning to do a practical training and exam at an RYA sailing school to become a Coastal Skipper. The shore based courses are organised in Amsterdam and will be in English, as the optional RYA exam will be in English as well. Moreover we offer online courses in English.
