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 trail days and or cruises for those members in need of further experience before being allowed to skipper either of the club yachts. An experienced skipper and if considered necessary a mate, will be in charge of the club yacht during this test.
Prospective skippers will be vetted during these test days or cruises and will need to be accredited before being able to skipper the Club yachts. The cost of a test will be £35 plus temporary membership of £20 paid on the day, however this temporary membership fee will be refunded to that person if they join the club as a sailing member.
