The nautiNav Instructor pack is our best seller, with hundreds of packs sold to navigation instructors worldwide.

This pack is designed to be taken afloat, all you need for your compact training kit would be a small magnetic whiteboard, we added magnets into the bases so that even in 'interesting' conditions you won't lose something overboard!

This pack has been created specifically for instructors afloat, it’s the perfect complement to your training days. Carry on to the boat in your dry bag and with the addition of a small magnetic whiteboard (which can be obtained for a few pounds from major retailers), you have a classroom afloat!

We created a few new items for this pack which will come in very handy, all of which are magnetic using neodymium magnets encapsulated in the base of the model.

In this pack, you will receive ALL 12 IALA Buoy Mini Models, suitable for placing on a chart or on a whiteboard on your lap, we also provide the top marks to convert your set between Region A & B, so you can teach those scenarios too. The Preferred Channel Marks can be converted into Lateral Marks simply by exchanging the body sections, so you can create a small channel example.

If you can imagine a scenario you can probably demonstrate it using this pack, let’s look at a couple of the possibilities.

  • Man Overboard
    • Place the marker between a wind arrow and a rib
    • Demonstrate the approach into wind
    • Demonstrate where we will be picking up the casualty
    • Demonstrate our escape plan
  • Picking up a Buoy
    • Place a buoy and wind arrow (and tide too!)
    • Demonstrate the correct approach
    • Demonstrate the best place to pick up the buoy
    • Demonstrate leaving the buoy
  • Coming Alongside
    • Set up the pontoon, wind and tide indicators
    • Use a second model to show other boats moored
    • Demonstrate the approach, and escape plan
    • Demonstrate where we will pick up the pontoon
    • Demonstrate how we will leave

As you can see, that’s just three possibilities for using the models afloat, you can also use the buoys to demonstrate pilotage, navigation, colregs, demonstrate sailing boat tactics, and much much more.

This pack contains BOTH IALA Region A & B Top Marks! You do not need to purchase any add-ons or extras to be able to teach the IALA system worldwide. 

If you would prefer the addition of all the larger buoys, more models and tools which have been designed for classroom use, then the Sea School Pack is a great choice.
