Introduction

This course is for anyone interested in sailing, motor boating, sea angling or diving, and works well in complementing our on-the-water training, such as the Start Yachting, Competent Crew and Day Skipper courses.

This is a highly informative course with lots of opportunities for you to put your new found knowledge into practice. You will be given many interactive exercises to help reinforce the information and lots of chances to try out what you’ve learned.

The course will take place over six sessions. Firstly 1 x full day in classroom setting in the Trident Hotel, Kinsale and followed by 4 evenings online via live classroom style Zoom sessions and finishing with another day in the classroom.
