Notices, Workshops & Rides: 3 week course on small boat navigation.
Hi my name is Ira,
I have been rowing around the coast for 5 years covering around 5000km and over 70 islands.
I recently rowed up here from Salt Spring island in the fall.
(June 3rd - 7th and 10th - 14th)
I will be running a course on small human powered boat navigation.
The course will be 3 weeks long, 2 weeks in a classroom (20 hours) and 1 week on the ocean doing a small island hopping trip.
1st week will be basic marine knowledge. (knots, boat maintenance, gear overview, etc)
2nd week will be more advanced marine knowledge. (Chart plotting, currents and tides, weather, etc)
3rd week will be doing an actual trip. Plus 10 hours of other marine knowledge and survival knowledge)
The full course se will cost $500. $50 dollar deposit included in full price.
You can pay $250 first week and $250 before the end of the course if needed.
Can not make it for all 3 weeks? That is fine you can just do one of the weeks or 2 of the weeks.
Each week only costs $200
*Must do first 2 weeks in order to do island hopping trip or take a test to prove you have adequate knowledge for the trip.
BYOB Bring your own boat. I ask for you to have your own boat to keep costs low. Also so you have a boat you are comfortable with.
Max 15 people
