For hundreds of years there has been this mystique that learning Coastal Navigation requires some special skills or knowledge. Well nothing could be further from the truth. The very basics of coastal navigation is to know where we are, where we are going to and how to get there. While other programs may charge hundreds or even thousands of pounds we know the concept of coastal navigation is quite easy and so we have devised a program that can be undertaken for under £60.00.

We have designed the Coastal Navigation  -  it’s easy!’  course to be a complete low cost course covering all aspects of coastal navigation.  It features full narration, video, hundreds of illustrations and animated graphics and step-by-step examples.

There are relevant exercises included that give you ample opportunity to engage in actual coastal navigation chartwork activities!
