First Day At School...

There are three of us doing the 14 week course.

Mike (owner of Sail In Asia) covered the course syllabus with us today...

The first 6 weeks we will be doing 500 miles on the water and covering all the theory and practical required to Bareboat Skipper.

We then go on a 5 week sea journey, where we will cover 2500 miles by the time we return.  Our 5 week journey will take us from Phuket to, Butang, Penang, Singapore, Kuching, Brunei and Kota Kinaballu, then back.  The boat we will be doing this on is actually a racing boat.  She goes very fast, there are no luxuries on-board (except there is a toilet!) but it has the necessary things for an ocean passage.  She has recently had brand new rod rigging, a new engine and has powerful electronics.

What an exciting journey we are on!
