Navigation Courses & YouTube videos

From: Steve C.

Attention Meetup Members:

Our next two schedules for Coastal Navigation, held at our Long Island City classroom location, are as follows -

1. Four Sundays, February 15, 21, March 1 & 8.  Time is from 10am to 2:30 pm, with a lunch break.  Paneras, Starbucks, and various ethnic joints right nearby.

2. Four Wednesday evenings, February 18, 25, March 4 & 11.  Time is from 6:30 to 10pm with a short break in the middle.

Either way, Meetup Members are entitled to the lowest tuition we have ever charged for this course:
$295.  That's $100 off our current sale price, and $200 off the regular tuition!
We cover everything from, "This is a chart.  We call it a chart, not a map," to fixes, set & drift of current, and other advanced topics.  We prepare you for the ASA Coastal Navigation exam (105), and the text and processing are included in the tuition.  So are high quality plotting tools, our own text book with practice problems, Chart #1 book of symbols and abbreviations, mechanical pencils and art erasers.

If you'd like a quick sneak preview, we have some videos up on YouTube.  One of them sees our Director, Captain Stephen Glenn Card, answering a nav question for students aboard a J-28 during a cruising class.  This is while sailing near Shelter Island last October.  The only thing is that Captain Card is filming the video while answering the question that came up, and at the same time, keeping an eye on other vessels!  See how well he pulls it off, and please take a moment to rate it!  We have other short videos from Greece, the British Virgin Islands, and our own Obstacle Course
SM - our seemingly exclusive training aid  used locally for beginner students that accelerates learning and makes it more fun too.  These videos are candid, in-the-moment clips.  To find them on YouTube, just type in "nysailing."  Don't forget to rate them!

If you'd like to enroll for one of the nav schedules, shoot us an e-mail from the Meetup site to verify your membership and eligibility for the discount.  If you have a friend who isn't a Meetup member at the time of this message, they can come along for $345 - half of the extra Meetup discount.
