Royal Cork Navigation Courses begin next week.



Winter evening courses presented by Eddie English of SailCork

Eddie English of SailCork has been running sailing courses for 40 years and SailCork is Irelands longest established navigation school. He has been teaching navigation since the early 1980’s and has been running navigation courses at the RCYC since 1995.

Eddie’s unique presentation style is backed up with thousands of miles afloat in Ireland, the UK, Europe, the Caribbean and further afield. The courses bring together like minded sailors who share their knowledge as well as an excellent course syllabus. All of this combined with the comfortable surroundings of the Club make for an enjoyable and informative course.

The course syllabus includes a section on electronic navigation. Courses are designed to embrace all disciplines afloat. The full course syllabus is covered and Eddie adds extra information on Meteorology and items relevant to the Cork sailor!
