The RYA Inland Waterways eBook accompanies the RYA Inland Waterways Helmsman’s Course. Chapters include types of boat; rope handling; rules of the road; steerable power; turning; reversing, and propeller and wind effect.
Adapted for its digital format, we have enhanced our eBook version with animations to help explain manoeuvres.
Written and updated by Andrew Newman, Principal of an RYA Training Centre that runs courses applicable to inland waterways and the types of boats used thereon.
Due to the nature of this digital product, there are no log or certificate pages included like the printed version.
Please note: A copy of the paperback version is also included in the RYA Inland Waterways Helmsman’s Course Pack.
