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. Weather you want to improve 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 in 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 Portuguese and require a good knowledge 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 RYA Yachtmaster Ocean (only online).

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