We’d like to help you pass your RYA Shorebased course. To make it a little easier:
Our Step-by-Step guides:
Firstly students on our course are provided with our step by step guides. We know that for many some of the course work is new. Concepts like an Estimated Positions, Courses to Steer, Tidal Hours, and Secondary Ports corrections are new and unfamiliar. That’s why we have been busy producing the guides so our students have a more enjoyable course, and easier time preparing their work, and something of value to keep. If you’d like a sample please just send us an email.
Leith Nautical Sailing Academy videos:
Secondly we have produced a series of short videos, which are now available on You Tube. Think of them as our online guides. They are all based on student feedback on key topics they would like some help with. We have a sample below at the bottom of the page and you will find the full series on our You Tube Channel.
You will find our complete selection on You Tube by searching for “Leith Nautical Sailing Academy”.
We hope that you enjoy viewing them as much as we did making them.

Met Office Weather infographics:
We suggested taking a look at the Met Office web site to gain an valuable insight into the weather . Here you will find a find a wealth of information to help our understanding of the weather. For example the clouds on the sky can tell us a great deal if only we know a little bit more about them. Here’s a really useful link.
