Aigua Sea School
1 + 1/2 Hours
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.
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.
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 an hour and a half, usually on a Wednesday.
If the first session piques your interest, or you become aware of the fact that you need to study more before starting your 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.
