This course covers all aspects of Navigation Rules, starting from the basics and ending with all you need to navigate safely according to the Rules. It is for power and sail vessels, large and small, recreational or professional. The Rules are the same for "...every description of watercraft used as a means of transportation on water."

There are no prerequisites for the Nav Rules Course. There are a few instances where knowledge of specific navigation techniques is presumed, but these will be referenced and explained as they arise. Those planning to use radar on their vessel, will find that our Starpath Radar Rules module is extremely valuable in applying the important rules that relate to radar usage.

Not just for beginners! We have seasoned unlimited ocean masters take this course in preparation for a Pilot's Exam, since making 100% on the Rules part is crucial in that very competitive field.

Includes a detailed section on Nav Rules on Radar, including special explanations of what do in the fog when you see by radar alone a target approaching you on a potentially collision course.

Includes an extensive presentation of (the sometimes complex) vessel nav lights, organized by light color and by vessel type. Essentially all possibilities are illustrated, along with links to the appropriate Rule.
