COMPTENT CREW: No previous experience is required for this course and four hours night sailing is part of the syllabus. Full details of the syllabus are given in the G158/16 log book. This can be obtained from the RYA and will be needed for the instructor to sign off. After successful completion of the syllabus you will be a useful crew member. You will be given a certificate of completion when the course is successfully completed. For more information about the course contact the Crew Secretary cruising@ecyd.org.uk

DAY SKIPPER: Suggested minimum pre-course experience is 5 days sea time with 100 miles logged and 4 night hours sailing. You will need to demonstrate navigation to Day Skipper shore based standard. This best way to achieve this is to have completed the shore based course. You will be expected to have basic sailing ability with basic pilotage, boat handling and watch organisation skills. Full detail of the syllabus can be found in the G158/16 log book. This can be obtained from the RYA and will be needed for the instructor to sign off. After successful completion of the syllabus you will be able to skipper a small yacht in familiar waters by day. You will be given a certificate of completion when the course is successfully completed. You will need to provide a passport sized photo because the Day skipper certificate requires photo ID. For more information about the course contact the Crew Secretary cruising@ecyd.org.uk

SAFETY: The yacht is fully equipped to the highest standards. There are sufficient life jackets and safety harnesses on board for a full crew and it is recommended that life jackets are worn when underway. Consumption of alcohol is expected to follow the normal rules for drink driving. A safety briefing will be given but sailing can be dangerous and everyone must take responsibility for their own safety.

FOOD: is provided for meals taken on board but not alcohol. Meals taken ashore will be shared among the crew.

HEALTH: It is important that the skipper knows of any underlying health problems you may have but it is not a bar to sailing. You will be asked to complete a Health Declaration for your own safety and the skipper’s information.
