Building on the information covered in the Basic Coastal Navigation Course, in this intermediate level you’ll learn how to safely plan and execute a long continuous passage including night sailing in unfamiliar coastal or inland waters, in all conditions of visibility, with or without electronic aids.

This course focuses on near shore navigation and covers position determination methods using nonelectronic means, methods for dealing with current and leeway, determination of intermediate tidal heights and the impact that the Collision Regulations may have on navigational practice.

A prerequisite for this course is the Sail Canada Basic Coastal Navigation certification. The standard emphasizes the navigational skills at a level appropriate for bare boat chartering and for extended cruises in coastal waters.

Students need to bring: pencil, eraser, pen, note paper, parallel ruler* or Portland plotter, dividers and Chart 1*. Instructor will provide electronic course notes as well as a PDF of Canadian Chart 1.
