Day Skipper and Coastal Skipper/Yachtmaster Offshore Shorebased Courses
The Training Chart Plotter no longer forms part of these courses from 31 December 2019. From that date it will no longer be possible to install or activate the plotter.
If you are partway through a course at the moment, the plotter can still be installed until the end of December. However, technical support will no longer be available from 24 December 2019.
If you are about to start your course, please contact your training centre to receive the new material relating to electronic navigation rather than installing the plotter.

You should now see the imported folder within your plotter.
Within the demo overlay there is a demo route (labelled '1-Simple Demo Route around StrongHolme Island') and four sub-folders with pre-prepared chart work(labelled with sequential numbers).These match the 5 simulation files for the route monitor available to download below.
Once you have watched the tutorial on Using the Route Monitor, you will be ready to download the following simulations:
Simulation files for Question 3a, b and c of the Coastal Skipper/Yachtmaster Shorebased Exercises are not available. Instead, please use the following videos to complete the questions:
