Each year thousands of yachtsmen and powerboaters learn navigation and seamanship by attending RYA courses. The shorebased courses cover a wide variety of subjects which are easier taught ashore before going afloat and putting them into practice.
These navigation exercises have been written for students on RYA Day Skipper and Coastal Skipper/Yachtmaster courses who would like to hone their skills as they work through the course. They are also a useful reminder to experienced yachtsmen of the knowledge required to skipper a yacht safely. If you can answer these questions you have reached the level of the theory part of the Yachtmaster Offshore examination.
Navigational techniques change and the RYA syllabus is modified regularly to keep our training up to date and relevant in all the countries where the courses are available. To reflect this, the RYA introduced new fictitious charts in 2006 which have been used in these exercises. Sharp eyed navigators will recognise parts of southern England juxtaposed with Scapa Flow and areas off New Zealand, as well as a certain amount of creativity and awful puns courtesy of the Hydrographic Office. The Isle of Flotta becomes Synka and so on.
New tide tables and a tidal stream atlas were compiled predicting what would happen if this combination of land and sea actually existed, and extracts of these can be found at the back of the book.
