A weekend on Lindisfarne for those new to boating or on a course: 13th & 14th July

Whilst our Day Skipper and Yachtmaster courses are shore based, there is much in each syllabus that benefits hugely from getting on a real boat. Whether it is learning to use the radar, doing engine and boat safety checks, or just going out and identifying a few marks, the trainees always enjoy a day or two on board. This training weekend in the Solent will enable a group of trainees, or those new to boating, to have a day and night on Lindisfarne, a Nelson 42. Designed originally as a pilot boat, a Nelson is an ideal boat for training purposes. Apart from the usual, and important, preliminary checks of engines, radios and safety matters, the trainees will learn to “walk a boat”, and we shall be doing MOB exercises, how to recover a casualty, blind and radar navigation, and passage and pilotage plans. Piloting a boat into Portsmouth Harbour or down the Solent at night is one experience to add to many. No cost, except for a Saturday night meal. After which we will do a night pilotage back to the River Hamble. We will coincide with the LSC buoy Challenge No.4 and join them for the Saturday evening dinner
