LightMaster Nautical Training and Software


This website is currently undergoing re-organisation; please visit to order software.

LightMaster Software is the UK's leading supplier of training software for leisure and small craft sailors, a position it has held since pioneering this form of training, in 1992.

Here you will find truly interactive programs, to make learning easier and more fun. We concentrate on providing help in those topics where a computer can provide better training than a book or video presentation. We also offer a few books which complement our software.

Our overall objective is to assist you to gain the knowledge and experience needed to make your boating safer and more enjoyable.

LightMaster has worked closely with the Royal Yachting Association during our 15 years of designing training software. Many RYA courses centre their teaching methods around our software.

LightMaster also works closely with Neptune Navigation, the UKs leading specialist in Tide Prediction and Passage Planning for small-craft sailors.
