Dead Reckoning and Estimated Position

Getting to grips with basic marine navigation skills is a critical skill for any skipper / crew – this Virtual Training session takes you through navigation symbols, converting Compass to Magnetic to True bearings, Dead reckoning navigation and estimating your position. The session also looks at projecting an estimated position and uses practical exercises using the RYA Training Chart plotter.

During the COVID-19 Lock-down (April -June 2020) our Chief Instructor Kath Scott delivered over 20 free virtual training sessions on a range of boating topics.
