  • You can request for course dates you prefer in July or later. NaviClass will plan new course dates based on your preferences.

A nice day of cruising can easily be ruined by a disasterous berthing manouevre with lots of stress, shouting, embarresment – and entertainment for the spectators.
Who wants that?

NaviClass can learn you all the insights of how a boat turns and all tips and trick about berthing manouvres alnong pontoons, in bozes and mooring bouys on all wind directions.
A smooth manoeuvre is the result of good insight of the skipper, a well prepared yacht and crew and controlled helming with the right speed.

This course is targeted for all skippers that want to improve their close area and contact manoeuvres.
