RYA Yachtmaster Ocean

The RYA Yachtmaster Ocean course will teach you how to use a sextant to determine your position by use of the sight reduction tables and the nautical almanac. You will also learn about the four stages of a passage plan and the basics of ocean navigation.


Learn how a sextant works, the adjustments and corrections required and then how to take a ‘sun sight’. The second big part of the course will cover passage planning and its key phases.
