Yes, indeed you will. We have had nearly 40,000 students in our courses over the years (that is not a typo....forty thousand) — that have taken the courses successfully. Many if not most of the cel nav students have gone on to cross oceans or even circumnavigate; likewise weather students have gone on to win yacht races, locally and transoceanic.

We have had men and women from every walk of life. From teenagers to couples in their 70's. We could not have carried on in this manner if we were not getting the subject across. We stand by every student. If questions arise that are not answered in the materials, or you have special needs with some topic, just post a question and we will be there to help you. We have instructors in 4 different time zones, so you get prompt help.

We can make this invitation because after all these years our materials are thorough and we are confident you will find most of what you need already there. All parts of the course materials start out right at the basics, and build up with clearly laid out, step by step examples.

We have thought through not just the material itself over the years, but also how to present it. The pace of study is purposefully broken up, for example, between "book work" and plotting or hands on graphics work. All the answers are presented. We even have a special section in the front of the cel nav book that addresses the issue of anxiety with learning this material.

Over the years, we have had many people tell us that they have tried numerous approaches, but none had worked.... till now. This was the first course and teaching environment that had made the subject clear to them. And they went on to become good at it.
