Continuing the theme of offering discounted courses and sailing related qualifications for Up River members, we have arranged a special discount for members to take an ICC (International Certificate of Competence), practical and theoretical test, with Premier Sailing.
Previously promoted in club news emails, we now have just one place remaining. It’s a fantastic opportunity to get an internationally recognised qualification (often essential if you charter a yacht abroad) in a single day at the fraction of the price and time compared with the more comprehensive Day Skipper.
This day is quite rigorous, so participants will need to get some practice in (especially man-over-board) and study the requirements for the qualification. I’m thinking particularly about identifying vessels by their day marks, whistle blasts and lights which don’t feature much in our regular sailing on the Crouch.
Another upside from the day is the opportunity to helm/command the sailing schools 35 footer, so it might be an idea to think about wheel steering too. Whilst there will be ‘paperwork’, there is the potential for an interesting day sailing and to put into practice what we learned at the Navigation Classes earlier this year.
