PYA: Astro Nav still under review

ADVERTISEMENT

The Professional Yachting Association released this statement in May:

Following a meeting between the PYA and Roger Towner, registrar general of shipping & seaman with the MCA and MCA chief examiner, regarding the newly proposed Astro Navigation paper that was to be included as part of the Chief Mate (Y) endorsement to OOW (Y) 3000gt CoC, it has been confirmed that this proposal is still under review and will be further discussed at the Yacht Qualifying Panel in September, in consultation with the PYA.

It is thought that the Astro Navigation paper might now be introduced as part of the Master (Y) exam process. However, for now, anyone looking to apply for the Chief Mate (Y) 3000gt or the Chief Mate (Y) 3000gt upgrade will not be required to take this paper.
