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.
Our sailing school offers various coastal navigational courses.

The teacher is a CWO (=Dutch Sailing School Association) Certified Sailing Instructor, Watersportverbond (=Dutch Sailing Association) Certified trainer Coastal Navigation and EMCI Certified Yacht Broker & Purchase Appraiser. He also has made many sea miles on yachts sailing on the North Sea, Atlantic, in the Med and Caribbean as instructor and regatta sailor.
