Practical Sea Miles Course PDF Print E-mail

Hi All, we are doing the West Coast again in December 2012 and January 2013 so if you want to grow your experience, improve your navigation and coastal passage planning, plus gain some extra miles and have some fun in the process…. need I say more?!
We leave for Dassen Island and Saldanha on the 3 December 2012.

Check out our blog: (copy and paste this into your browser)  The latest blogpost no.5 Table Bay to Saldanha with lots of pics has just been posted.
It is this time of the year again when we head up the West Coast to get away from the strong South Easters in Table Bay and enjoy the favourable sailing conditions in and around Saldanha and St. Helena Bay.
During December and January 2012/2013 we will be offering past and present students and anyone else interested, the opportunity to grow their sailing experience and skills. We will be doing regular 3 and 5-day full time live aboard sailing trips and visiting places around Saldanha and St. Helena Bay.
These are practical trips with the object of gaining valuable sea miles and coastal sailing experience. Students live on board the yacht 24/7 and lengthy daily passages will be sailed regularly. There will also be time for swimming and just relaxing.
Some prior sailing experience or a Competent Crew or Day Skippers Certificate is advisable, though not essential. This is the ideal way to gain sailing experience in the Cape waters in all conditions. The trips are designed to give the student the opportunity to be a competent crew member on any yacht, learn to be the skipper in charge and prepare for the Day Skipper or Coastal Skipper Certificates.
Instructor to Student Ratio: Max. 1 : 5 or less Cost: R 400.00 per person per day excl. food & drink this applies to current and ex students (min stay 3 days)
