Night Navigation

Navigating at night on both familiar and unfamiliar waters is quite challenging for most sailors.

In harbours and closed waters it can be difficult to spot vessels or buoys because of the background lights from houses and roads on the land. Theoretical experience will teach you the rules and the light sequences, however actually sailing at night and taking the time to concentrate on the different lights and navigation marks is invaluable.

EastSail conducts a 3 hour night time session aboard our Beneteau yachts on Sydney Harbour for students to gain experience of harbour lights and International Buoyage systems. IALA-buoyage-course
This course complements our RYA training programme. $60

Syllabus:


Itinerary:

6pm Motor out, hoist sails, observe buoys. Look at lights, sail to heads, sail into harbour on the leads, observe other vessels. Return at 9pm
