A high speed capsize in an A Class can be just as fatal as one in an AC45.
Accordingly we wish to set up a pool of qualified and confident safety boats operators at HYC and are running the Australian Sailing Safety Boat Operators course over two weekends ensuring that attendees get the maximum time possible on the water.
HYC is conducting the first half of the program, working with catamarans, on 29th April starting at 8:30. The second date is yet to be confirmed but most likely will be held in late May
Pre-requisites for attendance are either:
- a current recreational boat license and 2 years experience; or
- qualification on the Australia Sailing Power Boat Handling Course
Attendees must also be physically fit and able to swim.
Attendance for current HYC members is free. If the numbers permit, we may consider applications from members of other Clubs. To lodge you application either complete the form here Course Nomination or email firstname.lastname@example.org giving your full name and details plus your Australian Registration Number
