Enhanced and interactive eBooks that bring the content to life
We have enhanced our digital editions (where possible) to
bring the content to life by embedding animations, video and interactive tools
to help illustrate the key points and skills from our popular books. As such
these eBooks are a great resource supporting our world famous training courses.
Although these eBooks are designed for tablets, we’re still keeping smart phones very much in mind. This way, you’ll still be able to access the enhanced interactive content on the smaller devices even if you feel you wouldn't read a book on something so small.
Our eBooks are contained within our own ‘RYA Books’ app
which is free to download, the app also includes free taster versions of the
eBooks so you can even try before you buy. We strongly recommend that you download the app first
before buying any eBooks to check compatibility. See
this page for more details on the books app
There are great examples throughout our eBook range of our
use of interactive content in areas such as seamanship, boat handling, passage
planning, windsurfing, knots and stability but you’ll find something very
special in our editions for:
We’ve created animated examples of
the voice procedures in the RYA VHF Handbook (E-G31) and also linked the content from
sample questions in RYA VHF Syllabus & Questions (E-G26) to help students pass the RYA SRC exam.
We’ve developed a special
tool to replicate using the tidal curves in the RYA Training Almanacs (E-TAN & E-TAS) to
help students taking shorebased navigation courses.
The Racing Rules of Sailing
developed our own rules engine which links the racing rules to RYA and ISAF
cases and also Q&As in our RYA Racing Rules & Cases (E-RRC).
There’s plenty for instructors as well with the way that the
interactive content can be used as a demonstration or enhanced learning on and
off the water. There are also a whole host of useful features (which we’re
always evolving) that will help you manage the content you want to support the
way you teach, such as:
