First Sail Training is one of the UK’s leading suppliers of Online RYA Theory Courses and one of the few recognised RYA Training Centres that specialises in shorebased training online.

Our aim is to bring you the Best Courses, backed up by the Best Service at the Best Price.

There are a number of options available for online / distance learning navigation courses and after careful consideration we’ve teamed up with the developers of what we believe to be the best online RYA Courses around.

While you can buy these courses elsewhere, choosing to book with First Sail Training will give you unrivalled service and value backed up by our Lowest Price Guarantee.

The RYA Navigation Programme consists of three main courses, the introductory RYA Online Essential Navigation & Seamanship Course, the intermediate RYA Day Skipper Theory and the advanced RYA Coastal Skipper & Yachtmaster Offshore Shorebased Course (normally referred to as either Coastal Skipper or Yachtmaster Theory).

For the RYA Essential Navigation & Seamanship Course we’ve chosen to partner the RYA through their excellent RYA Interactive system which provides a course full of animations and video tutorials, with built in knowledge tests throughout.

To bring you both the RYA Day Skipper & RYA Yachtmaster Theory Courses, we’ve teamed up with Navathome who are widely acknowledged to be at the forefront of interactive navigation training. These courses are full of animated teaching diagrams, graphics and quizzes and are designed to give you instant feedback on the course exercises as you progress.

Our customer feedback confirms that we have chosen our partners well
