The Parry Sound Power & Sail Squadron will be presenting the Seamanship course this fall starting September 29th.
Seamanship expands upon the CPS Boating Essentials course to provide the student with a more in-depth knowledge of tides, currents, wind, waves and weather. Traditional navigation, aids to navigation, Collision Regulations, GPS fixes, running fixes, DR plot, way points, the introduction of Deviation and chart labeling in both True and Magnetic are among the many topics covered.
Circumstances such as crew-overboard, medical emergencies, and potentially life-threatening situations are discussed. You will also “learn the ropes”, by gaining proficiency related to knots, hitches, bends, and splices as you develop your Marlinspike skills.
Details about pricing, time and location are available by contacting Parry Sound Power & Sail Squadron Commander and Education Officer, John Mason (705.342.1315, or firstname.lastname@example.org.).
