What you need

As this course is mostly about electronic navigation you will need a navigation system that you can use while completing the course. We recommend that you use the Navionics Boating app. It is easier to use on a tablet but the tablet must have a GPS.  The more modern tablet has a better battery which is important as the app uses a lot of power.
