“Last week, I completed my five day RYA Day Skipper Practical with EastSail in Sydney. They say it is a prerequisite to have done their ten-week RYA Day Skipper shore-based course but I decided to sign up regardless. I was worried I wouldn’t know enough so I went through all my notes from your course beforehand and also read through the Tides handout that you produced. Well, I shouldn’t have worried! I knew as much as anyone else on the boat, and your little tricks like Can Dead Mean Vote Twice and CADET, and the rule of twelfths, meant that I could do passage planning with confidence. I think it was partly that we did so many practical things in the face to face course with you, and you really focussed on the important bits. It was so much better than having to tackle an online RYA course by myself, you presented things in a really straightforward manner, it was much more affordable, the notes are really useful to refer to afterwards, and I got to meet other women, sailors, too.
I’d just wanted to say thank you to you and Shelley for all the hard work you put into the course and for everything you do encouraging women sailors. I appreciate it! – Antonia
