LearnToCruiseOnline is pleased to announce the availability of our online Intermediate Coastal and Electronic Navigation course. Graduates of this course will be awarded Sail Canada’s Intermediate Coastal Navigation standard. In addition, the course also covers various electronic navigation topics that are beyond the current standard. Intermediate Coastal and Electronic Navigation is priced at $150, which to our knowledge provides excellent value relative to alternatives, with the added benefit that you can learn from the comfort of your home, office, or boat!

LearnToCruiseOnline is pleased to announce the availability of our online VHF radio course. To legally operate a marine VHF radio in Canada, boaters are required to have a Restricted Operator Certificate (Maritime). LCTO’s online course is priced at $145, which now includes the official text, with the added benefit that you can learn from the comfort of your home, office, or boat! Click here for more details.
We are pleased to announce that Jamie Gordon, author of the Student Notes and Exercises for Basic Coastal Navigation has provided an updated version of the Notes, Exercises and Appendices. If you are starting a course in 2018, you should use the new version of the documents. The old versions are still available for download for continuity if you have already started a course using the older versions
The new version addresses updates to the Basic Coastal Navigation standard that became effective in 2017.
The Session pages have been updated with references to both the older and newer versions of the notes.
LTCO’s Intermediate Cruising Ashore Knowledge Module is now available! If you are thinking about taking an Intermediate course in future, this will help you prepare for the course and for the official Sail Canada Intermediate Cruising Ashore Knowledge exam. With this work behind you, you’ll get a lot more out of your afloat experience!

Note from Rob: I’ve bareboated in St. Vincent twice, once in the 90s and again last year. It’s a wonderful place to sail and I’m excited to be on the instructor team with BOSS! The image above is the spectacular remote reef, Tobago Keys. When you’re anchored in that location, there’s nothing but the reef between you and Africa!
