MARK LAYING TRAINING

Saturday 26 or Sunday 27 January 2019

RHKYC Middle Island, 0900 - 1700hrs

This mark laying training will introduce you to the basics of good mark laying, and will cover GPS use, mark/warp/anchor preparation, deployment and recovery, and additional tasks that a race officer might ask you to do (wind readings, mark rounding recording, flag signals, shortening course). After this training, you will be confident to help with mark laying at one of the Club's larger regattas such as Hong Kong Race Week.

To sign up for training:

On Saturday 26 January, please email Brenda Davies.

On Sunday 27 January, please email Brenda Davies.

 

RUSTY RIB TRAINING

If you are on the Club's RIB list but haven't been out on a RIB for a while, join a Rusty RIB training session to reacquaint you with the skills needed to confidently handle these boats. Ideally, once you've enjoyed a training session, you will be keen to help out during an event or two during the year. 

The instructor student to ratio will be 1:1 or 1:2, and the fee per session will be $600 per person.

Next training dates & times - to be confirmed.

RYA POWERBOAT LEVEL 2

The RHKYC is a recognised RYA Training Centre for powerboat courses. To drive a RHKYC RIB, you must first hold the RYA Powerboat Level 2 certificate. Successful students who also hold a HK PVOC 2 may be added to the Club’s approved RIB driver list. Spaces are limited as the ratio is three students to one instructor and most weekends we only have one or two powerboats available for this training. Please complete and return the application to reserve a place.

This two-day entry-level course provides the skills and background knowledge needed to drive a powerboat and is the basis of the International Certificate of Competence. It focuses on low-speed close quarters handling, man overboard recovery, an introduction to driving at planning speed, and collision regulations.

All courses are open to anyone over the age of 16 years.

 

 RYA SAFETY BOAT COURSE

This two-day course provides the skills required when acting as an escort craft, safety boat or coach boat for a fleet of dinghies, windsurfers or canoes, or for racing or training activities.
