RYA European Waterways Regulations
This is the RYA’s official title to support the CEVNI test as it expands upon the quick reference CEVNI Handbook (G106) to assist with a deeper level of understanding which will help you pass the test which is a legal requirement (as well as carrying a CEVNI book on board) when using the European Inland Waterways.
The CEVNI code which was devised by the United Nations in 1985 and governs navigation on all interconnected European inland waterways was established to enable boatmen of all nationalities to communicate, and to understand what is going on without the need to speak each other’s language.
This new edition of RYA European Waterways Regulations has been fully updated and is essential reading for anyone taking the CEVNI qualification. The exciting new colourful format, with user-friendly text and illustrations, enables the reader to find information quickly – a perfect learning tool and reference. Key chapters include:
- Visual Signs
- Rules of the Road (particularly blue boarding)
- Sample CEVNI test questions

RYA Navigation Handbook 2nd Edition
This second edition of the best-selling RYA Navigation Handbook is essential reading for anyone taking to the water and looking for the complete guide to navigation.
Navigation techniques and practices have changed dramatically over the years and today, many sailors and motor boaters regard electronic instruments as their principal means of navigation. However, traditional methods still have an important part to play, as does knowledge of aspects such as tides, lights, buoys and beacons.
This new edition has been redesigned with that in mind; to provide the reader with a sound understanding of the principals of navigation as well as providing insight into the ways in which electronic navigation can be used to best effect.
This book will help to ensure the development of a ‘well rounded’ and competent navigator.
