Yachtmaster Workshops: an Aigua Sea School Special
Yachtmaster Nautical Theory Workshops
All are welcome to our regular nautical theory workshops. Relaxed and informal sessions where we cover, what we fondly refer to as, ‘the basics’:
- from buoyage and lights
- to vessel day shapes
- fog signals
- flags and
- nautical etiquette
We explore a nautical chart, use a 5011, calculate magnetic variation and understand, and plot, latitude and longitude.
Aigua workshops are always free-of-charge and always have been since we first introduced them back in 2008.
The workshops run for around 2 hours, usually on a Thursday, the week before each scheduled Yachtmaster navigation theory course. If the first session piques your interest, or you become aware of the fact that you need to study more before starting your Yachtmaster training, we will schedule further sessions to revise ‘course to steer’ and ‘estimated position’ tidal calculations taking care to use the correct chart symbols. You’ll also learn where to find tidal information from almanacs so we can calculate tidal heights in standard and secondary ports.
In these workshops you will learn about general seamanship and awareness, how to create pilotage plans and we can answer all your questions about the Yachtmaster examinations ahead.
Originally established to give a boost to the new Yachtmaster candidates, we built on the idea to include all Aigua students. Even ‘Officer of the Watch’ candidates attend to keep their navigation skills up to speed!
The sessions are run by me, Linda (school principal), and it gives me the opportunity to get to know you so that my team and I can best support you through your training program. Our international students find these sessions particularly useful, as it provides a helpful revision of nautical English.

I might also take this opportunity to let you know how happy I was with the course provided. Simon Bradshaw was without a doubt the best instructor I have had in any subject. I would highly recommend Aigua Sea School to anyone.
Great school to do your yacht master course with! I would definitely recommend going to the free workshops prior to the course, Linda runs these very well and is willing to take on any questions or queries that allowed me to feel confident and comfortable going into the theory week. John was a great instructor…
Highly professional Instructors & Staff. This is 2nd time that I’m finishing courses with them. I was here 3 year’s ago and they are still amazing. Now I had such a great experience with Celestial navigation. I highly recommend this school.
Good school and they really care about the students.
