Accreditation of skippers
The Boat Committee has drawn up a list of members considered to be sufficiently experienced and responsible to skipper either Explorer or Ploes. The Club proposes to run a number of cruises for those members in need of further experience before being allowed to skipper either of the Club yachts. Depending on the duration of the cruise, an experienced skipper, and if considered necessary a mate, will be in charge of the Club yacht.
Prospective skippers will be vetted during these cruises and will need to be accredited before being able to skipper the Club yachts, the cost of a test will be £30.
