Passage Planning what one couple thought…
Before reading their comments, keep in mind this quote:
“If a thing is worth doing, it is worth doing well. If it is worth having, it is worth waiting for.
If it is worth attaining, it is worth fighting for.
If it is worth experiencing it is worth putting aside time for.”
Gaye and I completed Jackie’s Sister Ship Passage Planning Course about 6 months ago. We have a few thousand nautical miles on our boat now and can say that the course was fantastic! It burrows into the details and builds a strong foundation that supports the final development of a passage plan. The comprehension builds confidence.
Recently in a group discussion with other cruisers about passage planning, we were intrigued that some boaties were using a software-driven passage plan done on their iPhones. Set a beginning and finishing point and within seconds the phone has drawn some pretty lines. While we all arrived at the same destination, we were somewhat surprised. What about the weather, tides, currents, safety ports, bar crossings, radio reporting, boat preparation and crewing etc? The iPhone provided none of these considerations.
Yes! The course is more work, and is far more challenging than pressing a few buttons on a screen, but, the results are robust and valuable. You are left with a confident passage plan that provides safety for your vessel and crew. Thanks, Jackie.
