Yachtmaster Theory 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 theory 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 theory 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.
