- Dinghy Level 1 Proficiency
With this course and certification, it allowed me to have more experience on a sailing boat, but on a smaller scale.
It was a 3 day course starting at 0900 hours everyday of the course and ends at around 1830 hours everyday.
We were explained on parts of the dinghy, the right of way when out at sea, different types of boats, how to properly rig up your boat, etc.
There was alot of theory the first day before we got to actually go for simulation and the actual launching off in the waters.
One of my difficulties was how to recover when your boat capsizes as it takes alot of practice on how to counter the weight of the boats.
After we had simulation, we were headed out into open waters and we were given a taste at how sailing feels like, on your own, on your own boat.
