Tammy Trains

The combination of strong winds and currents made for ideal conditions to complete our Seamanship Skills course much of which is based around coastal conditions particularly the classic wind against tide /wind with tide situations with current substituting for tide.
After a gruelling theory session in the morning we got on the water to practise

And lots of other tricky stuff .(rudderless, centreboard-less, heaving to and reefing).
Finishing this course early frees us up to do some in house powerboat training, please let me know if you are interested .
Next event Instructor Refresher day on Feb 16th details to be confirmed but no charge and all welcome.
