This course is designed to teach you all of the old (coastal - within sight of land) navigation tricks used by the sailing masters prior to the age of electronic navigation.

Not caring about Coastal Navigation is a lot like learning how to fly and expecting the planes computer to land it every time.  If the computer fails, it's going to get messy.

Prerequisites:

No prerequisites required for this course.

Upon Completion:

You will have been taught all of the most common techniques used for 100's of years to navigate close to shore (where it counts).  The assumptions of the course are that you are always sailing in foul weather and the engine died long enough ago that there is no longer any electricity available.

Starting Dates:

Live Online Webinars:  This class is only taught by an instructor, online, typically starting on the 2nd Tuesday evening of February each year, running from 7:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m. MST.  For the year 2020, the starting date will be Tuesday, February 4, 2020.  Recorded sessions are available at any time.

Recorded Sessions:  Since all of the sessions are recorded it is possible to start at any time and run through the recorded webinars at your own pace.  For 2 years from the date of purchase, you will be considered an "Active" student and will have access to all of the videos and live presentations to complete the class.  You can reset the clock and retake the course for the cost of the materials package. 

Any "active" student can attend any of the live online sessions
