May 5th 4PM – May 10th 4PM Competent Crew/Day Skipper or Coastal Skipper Courses
Level 1 + 2
Competent Crew & Day Skipper Certification
Based in the scenic cruising grounds of the Gulf Islands, this comprehensive course covers boat handling and safe seamanship practices as well as introducing the basics of coastal navigation. After departing our base at Port Sidney you’ll spend five days on board a 34 – 38 ft sailboat, cruising and learning through some of the most spectacular waters in the world. You’ll spend each night either at anchor under the stars or secured at a cozy marina. For those students looking for a holiday of a slightly more relaxed nature a Competent Crew standard has been developed to provide a sufficient level of knowledge to assist in the safe operation of a vessel.
This course, designed for the graduate of the Day Skipper program and marked Coastal Navigation program or people of equivalent experience, will expand your experience by navigating some of the stronger current passes. This course touches lightly on the basics as a review and continues on to more advanced levels of anchoring, sail trim, use of a cruising chute, heavy weather tactics, cruise planning, navigation and night passages. This level is commonly a prerequisite to bareboat chartering.
Prerequisites: Level 1, 2, 3, VHF & Adult First Aid (CPR)
