These learning aids have been developed with three goals in mind.

  1. To help you prepare for the "on-the-water" sessions of your sailing course.
  2. To help you prepare for the Basic Cruising theory and PCOC exams.
  3. To add an element of fun to the learning process.

They should be used in conjunction with the training material provided in your course package.

Learning is always easier if it is fun. I hope you find these learning aids useful and that you also have fun using them. If you find any errors and/or want to make suggestions for improvements or think of topics for other learning aids please email.
