We completed our last practical training for the season late last week, with a 5 day Yachtmaster exam coaching session.  It was a busy season, as usual.  Now looking forward to 2019 … the schedule should by up by Christmas.

Here is a pic from night sailing last week.

Many thanks to all those that made the 2018 season a success!

Just finished teaching a full RYA Competent Crew course.  Pretty good weather and almost 100 miles sailed.  Now a week off and will be prepping for our first mile-builder of the season …. around southern Nova Scotia and up the Bay of Fundy to Saint John.

Yachtmaster prep week finished

We ended the month with a 5 day RYA Yachtmaster exam preparation.  Some good winds and a mixed bag of temperatures.  Some docking practice at the Rope Loft Restaurant in Chester followed by a break with a bit of sundeck time.
