This course will provide a good understanding of the concepts and techniques used to safely navigate in inshore coastal waters. It is strongly recommended that you complete this shorebased course if you are considering the Day Skipper practical course. The Shorebased course teaches you to navigate using both traditional and electronic methods, which can then be applied at sea.


The Day Skipper Theory course covers day and night navigation, chart work and tidal heights. There is an introduction to secondary ports, tidal streams and course to steer, pilotage, passage planning, the hazards and limitations of GPS chart plotters, meteorology and rules of the road. The course is taught in our spacious classroom at Chichester Marine Training. All charts and training equipment are provided.

Useful Information

Course runs from 0800 to approx 1630 each day. Please be prepared to complete homework most nights. There are two exams to sit towards the end of the week.
