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!
