Christian Grose, who recently joined the SRC office team, has been building on his skipper qualifications the past few weeks. Most recently completing his Day Skippers Theory with Powerboat Training UK, a week long course which could be described as the boating worlds equivalent of taking your theory test when learning to drive a car.
Over the week you are taught about passage planning, safety on the water, signage, signals and how weather and tides can effect your journey.
‘It’s a lot of information to remember in just a week, you need to be prepared to go home after each lesson and do some extra homework! The course really increased my knowledge of what everything means on the water and overall has made me a more aware of what to plan for when on charter.’
If you’re interested in taking the course then please contact Powerboat Training UK For further information.
