About OpenCPN: Chartplotter & GPS Navigation Software:

OpenCPN is a free software (GPLv2) project to create a concise chart plotter and navigation software, for use underway or as a planning tool. OpenCPN is developed by a team of active sailors using real world conditions for program testing and refinement.

The most recent stable version can be downloaded from opencpn.org/ocpn/download

For a FREE OpenCPN app for your android device click here.

You will be able to find digital charts for all areas of the world, including navigational charts, pilot charts, tide tables and have access to many other resorces once you get started with your OpenCPN app.

To get the most from this software, take a look thru the OpenCPN Users Manual. If you get stuck, there is lots of very useful advice and tips on the Cruisers forum website.

 To get started, here is a link to a full set of outdated navigational charts for Thai waters. Please note that these are OLDER charts and not recommended for navigational use...

5/10 Day Course Option

SQ banner 14

While most students complete the IYT Crew/Skipper course course in one 10 day session, it is possible to split up our full 10 day course into two 5 day sessions. You can start with the first 5 days (IYT International Crew) and then fit in the second 5 days (IYT International Bareboat Skipper) as your schedule allows. You can do this during any of our scheduled 10 day course dates. You will save 4,000THB when you pay for the full 10 day course at one time, then schedule your dates as it fits your schedule.

Of course, it is also ok if you join the IYT Crew course only (first 5 days of any scheduled 10 day course) or the IYT Bareboat Skipper course, qualified sailors only (last 5 days of any scheduled 10 day course).
