Winter...The Ideal Season for a Shorebased Course

header cartas
Even if we sail the whole year at West Coast, we cannot disagree the the cold and wet days are the ideal timing for a theory course. Wether to update your knowledge with a short course or to start learning the fundamentals of navigation we provide several options either class based or online, in portuguese and English.

Within the portuguese certification scheme (Carta de Navegador de Recreio) you can choose between Marinheiro, Patrão Local, Patrão de Costa ou Patrão de Alto Mar. These courses are taught in English and require a good knoledge of the language.

Within the RYA training and certification scheme (taught in English) you can choose to follow your theory courses either by sitting in class or online. These include RYA Essential Navigation and Seamanship, RYA Day Skipper Shorebased and RYA Costal Skipper / Yachtmaster Shorebased.

And besides the fundamental Navigation courses advised as fundamental knowledge for the practical courses we also provide valuable specialty short courses including RYA Radar (class based), RYA First Aid (class based) or RYA VHF SRC (class based or online).

Contact us for more information and advise and to receive our calendars and available places. Start preparing your 2019 boating season right now !
