This course of five days of two hours, aims to provide candidates with the introductory knowledge required for the crew of a sailboat (mono hull or catamaran) up to 15 meters, in inland or coastal waters,< 5 miles from the coast during daylight hours, in moderate winds and moderate sea conditions.
The course is great for groups of friends or like-minded individuals, to gather over a few days of fun sailing while learning skills to better assist as crew on a boat. We hope that candidates will enjoy the experience and advancement at higher levels of sailing courses.
This course deals with training for the full range of VHF Radio and SRC communications for both recreational and professional boaters. Attendees will learn how static radios, handheld (mobile) radios, EPIRBs, SART devices, AIS and DSC-enabled radios are used effectively in nautical communication.
