So what does one need to be rent a charter
It's a lofty goal for someone like me who has 1 whole summer of messing around on a 25' boat
but I should have a few more summers left in me
I was thinking of renting
in the winter
of 2012 and what I have so far is a Canadian Boater's License
, White Sail 1,2 and 3 and Canadian Yachting Association's Basic Keelboat. I also have CPSS courses for Junior Navigator (sun celestial), Basic Sail, Marine Maintenance
, Piloting, Advanced Piloting and my radio license
Do you have to show time on the water
? The CYA course gave me a log book but it's more for their courses than a day to day thing.
I didn't keep a log last summer since I was always in sight of land, less than 3 miles from my home harbour and mainly, too concerned about keeping the shiny bits out of the water
to worry about charts
and writing things down. I don't have knotmeter
or any sort of distance measuring device on board anyway. Is this something I should add to the boat
for next summer?
