September is usually a quiet month for Ondeck Sailing in Antigua and gives us a chance for us to catch up on paperwork and old friends but this one doesn’t appear to be working out that way.
We have just completed a Yachtmaster Offshore Course (congratulations to Roger on passing) and are in the middle of a very busy STCW 95 Basic Training Course.
Also, because its a quiet time for visitors, many of the captains and crew that work on commercial vessels in Antigua and Barbuda are taking advantage of the downtime to acquire their Boatmaster qualifications that are becoming a requirement by the year end.
Finally, a further bit of good news in that we were successful with our annual RYA Official Inspection and have renewed our Training Centre license for the delivery of Powerboat and Sail Training courses from RYA Start Yachting Course for novices to RYA Yachtmaster Offshore, RYA Yachtmaster Ocean and lots in-between. Details of all our courses are on our website.
