MarineMax Danvers is teaming up with the Captains from Boatwise to teach our Basic Coastal Navigation class Saturday, April 6th from 8am to 4pm. Instruction on the fundamentals of coastal navigation from the perspective that the student has no current knowledge of navigation techniques. A must for anyone intending to do any coastal cruising. Topics covered include: latitude/longitude, compass theory, variation and deviation, navigation tools, charts, bearing conversion, distance/speed/time calculations, 3 point fixes, basic tide and current theory, proper plotting techniques, and more. This 8-hour curriculum includes 2 to 3 hours of hands-on chart work using skills taught. All materials included.  

This informative session is offered on a reservation basis. The instructors are all USCG certified captains from Boatwise, Inc., New England's premier boating education company. After the class is completed, a Certificate of Completion will be emailed to each participant. There is no testing required with this topic.
