First Graduates of Nomad 1

Posted: 9 April 2011 by Jim Barden in News, Training

Nomad 1,  launched on 25th March, and she did a grand job of hosting her first group of students.  Well done to Debs, Pete (the knot) and Pete (not the knot) for completing and passing their Day Skipper qualification with flying colours.  They are now free to skipper their own or chartered boat, very exciting sailing opportunities ahead.   Debs is now more confident to share the skippering and navigation on her own boat, and Pete and Pete are going to charter in the Med and take Nomad 1 out for a spin on their own sometime this summer.

Well done to Liz and Anna also, who completed and passed the Competent Crew course.  They are now more than useful as crew and helm.  Great preparation for a trip to the BVI’s this week and hopefully on to become Skippers.

Nomad 1 is out this weekend practicing boat handling in the sun, as a refresher for a crew of Day Skippers that qualified last year.
