This course will teach you how to handle a boat in in moderate conditions. You'll learn how to launch and recover the boat in different circumstances, as well as stopping, reducing sail, recovering a man overboard and anchoring. On completion of this course you should be capable of confidently manoeuvring a keelboat or dinghy and be able to make seamanship decisions in a wide range of situations afloat.

We advise that you have completed the Basic Skills - Level 2 course before enrolling on the seamanship course.
