MTE 1802 - Basic Seamanship
(3 Credit Hours)
This lecture course consists of both theoretical and practical modules and gives a basic understanding of the knowledge that is required to be an active crew member on board a yacht, whether power or sail. More advanced modules are aimed at increasing a student’s nautical knowledge sufficiently to be a watch keeper on board a bareboat yacht, or a flotilla skipper in fair weather, in daylight hours within sight of land. Material will be delivered through lectures, assigned reading, discussions and practical activity on the waters using both motor and sailing vessels of all sizes (10ft-112ft).
