Rules of the Road is an in-depth course that dives into the Navigational Rules of boating. Instructor Robert Reeder, will review each rule in detail, citing both inland and international distinctions, and teaching the safe operation of both recreational and commercial vessels in US and International waters. These concepts are essential knowledge for the smallest dinghy to the biggest Superyacht.

There may be markers, but there are no marked lanes on the waterways, yet there is still a right and wrong place for you to be when you encounter other boats. While there is no license for recreational boaters, we are still responsible for understanding the rules that define the right and wrong of boating. In our online course Fundamentals of Seamanship: Navigation Rules, instructor Robert Reeder reviews each rule in detail, citing both inland and international distinctions, and teaching the safe operation of both recreational and commercial vessels in U.S. and International waters. Reeder began his seafaring career in Navy submarines and has worked as a watchstander on vessels ranging from container ships to tugboats to the high-speed ferry on which he serves today. The concepts he teaches are essential to the safe operation of any watercraft whether a kayak or a cruise ship and every vessel in-between.
