The in-depth reference section includes dozens of illustrated and detailed how-to guides covering:

• Plotting a Course to Steer
• Calculating Leeway
• Calculating Set and Drift
• Compass Deviation and Magnetic Variation
• Estimated Positions
• Interpolating Tidal Streams
• Calculating Depth to Anchor
• Bridge Clearances
• Secondary Port Calculations
• Buoyage and Beacons
• Safety and Distress
• VHF Radio
• Weather and Shipping Forecasts
• and Many More!

For those who need to brush up on their knowledge of the COLREGs / IRPCS, load up the flashcards for a quick quiz. Included with the app are a set of “Rules of the Road” flashcards covering numerous collision scenarios. Additional flashcards covering vessel lights, day shapes, flags and sound signals are available to purchase in-app as a single add-on pack.

For the racing community there's a handy race timer with a 5,4,1,0 countdown and lap timer.

Also available are instructional animations illustrating how to tie a number of the most common nautical knots. Each knot is accompanied by a brief description outlining suitable applications.
