I have just spent the last three days doing the instructors course at Middle Harbour Yacht Club. It was nice to finally tick that off the list as it is something I have been meaning to do for a long time but just not had the chance. Having already done the Powerboat Handling and First Aid this was the next thing on my list. Great to be able to say after over 20yrs I now can call myself an Instructor. The course was certainly beneficial especially for someone like me who does not remember learning how to sail. So trying to put myself in a learners shoes is not something I can easily relate to. So to have the guidelines to go by will certainly make it a whole lot easier for me to help out those new to our sport!
I must admit that yesterday I was pretty lucky to be on the water. Great blue sky and even better was the fact that it was a Nor’easter!
BRING ON SUMMER!!!
Now to pack the van for Belmont and the Yachting NSW Youth Championships, unpack a Liros Shipment this afternoon, go to the rules night at the club tonight for a refresh, pack myself for Belmont. Then head up to the youth states on Friday.
At this stage there are 196 competitors for the NSW Youth Champs. That is amazing! Dad is the RO for Course Area B and at this stage I am on the Pin boat. We have the Laser Radial, Laser 4.7, Flying 11, 420 and 29’er fleets!
