Practical Training/Assessment Event
USA, Lakeway, TX
If you are planning to bareboat charter in the Mediterranean, you are required to have a license. Landfall Sailing conveniently offers refresher courses as well as licensing year round in Austin, Texas. Prerequisites include completion of the NauticEd Bareboat Charter Master bundled courses and the SLC review course. We respect your existing knowledge and thus we don’t condescendingly make you take basic training if you are already experienced and skillful. Rather, you can jump in at any level and pass all the online exams and complete the on-the-water assessment without training. Landfall Sailing offers, what we call, a rust-removal day prior to the assessment day. This ensures you can pass the assessment requirements. e.g. Can you Mediterranean moor in a crosswind? Can you dock and leave the dock using spring lines? Can you sail up to a mooring ball and stop? Give a tide range? Can you calculate the depth at a certain time of the day? If you are rusty, we recommend a rust removal day. Both of these days, rust removal and assessment, will count towards your recent 5-day sailing within the past year requirement.
