Night Navigation

Sail at night using standard navigation techniques as well as Radar and AIS.

This 4-day course is geared towards sailors on the intermediate level and is organised by our training centre as an addition to our MOSS courses.

The course has the following learning objectives:
  • Becoming confident in sailing and manoeuvring in reduced visibility or at night
  • Putting theoretical knowledge (e.g. lights and navigation) into practice
  • Learn to use radar and other electronic navigation devices

After this 4 day course, you will have gained valuable experience as a navigator and skipper/watch leader, and have collected the required ‘night’ miles for a future certification on Advanced Sailor or Master of Yachts level. It is an important ‘tick in the box’ of your skill set for those interested to participate in long passages (mile builders) or when you consider joining yacht delivery trips The course will take place along the coast of the Netherlands, mainly on tidal waters. Departure point is Medemblik. The minimum number of participants is 3, the maximum is 4.

Below is an example of the program, however the exact sailing area and final program will depend on the weather conditions and your individual needs. Adverse weather may result in rescheduling of the course.
