PrerequisitesMust be a current or previous Coastguard Northern Region Maritime School Day Skipper or Boatmaster student. Partners also welcome.

Course Content: Navigation marks, lights, useful hints and tips as well as local knowledge.

During the evening we will apply some of the material covered in your course in the most practical environment possible.

This informative and interactive evening will help cement the material covered in your course and improve confidence levels making your own boating safer and more enjoyable.

If most of your boating has been done during the day and you’re thinking about operating at night - perhaps after an evening fish or BBQ, this trip is a must.
