Passage Planning and Reef Navigation

Susan R. Rooms (AMSA Master 5, NC, Yachtmaster Instructor (ret), Australian agent Van de Stadt Design) presented a very informative Workshop on Thursday 26 April 2018 and we were incredibly impressed with the effort put into her handouts and the depth of information included.  Susan has very kindly given us permission to share her fantastic notes (see download links below).

Susan would like to thank the commercial sponsors:

  • Gillian Pincott - The Navigation Centre - 07 4772 1069 (charts & other aids on the night)

  • Barry Dionysius - Navroom Electronics - 1800 632 422 (for background information on radio, satcom and other electronic aids to navigation)

Thanks also to Katie in the TYC Office for scanning & printing the notes & drawings and helping with the preparations, and to Chris Jones, Dick Greenwood, and Russ Pyers - our in house local experts.

Susan is available for 1:1 tutoring on any topic maritime including those in the TYC Workshop.  She also provides a service for people considering the purchase of any second hand Van de Stadt designed vessel and has almost finished a manual on search & rescue - "MAYDAY MARSAR MEDIVAC".
