Canadian Yachting October 2016 - 45

Anchoring - knowing the correct ratios for differing conditions - selecting the most appropriate anchor, setting the 'hook' and recovering the anchor, finding a suitable anchorage (see Staying Put in CY April 2015 for a detailed article on Anchors and Anchoring) plotters, VHF Radio with digital selective calling (DSC) and piloting in unfamiliar harbours Safety and systems - filing a sailing plan, checking all of your boat's systems - galley, water, waste, electrical, sails, rigging, first aid and safety Living Aboard - galley procedures, cooking systems, proper electrical management (both 12 and 110 volt), effective use of refrigeration, fresh water and waste water management Handling the Boat Under Power - docking and undocking, including in a current or tidal waters Handling the Boat Under Sail - reefing, heaving to, use of the traveller, using a cruising spinnaker Navigation - Getting marine forecasts (yes plural), charts reading, chart Add to all of this, understanding and the COLREGS (International Rules for the Prevention of Collision at Sea - 1972) Being a competent confident skipper requires gaining the knowledge and experience to be able to handle your boat in varying situations - situations you may never face in your homeport. If you are considering cruising - either for a few weeks, a few months or for several years, take the time to acquire the knowledge and then practice your skills to build your confidence. So, where do you get this training? We are very fortunate in Canada and the US to have several well-respected organizations that provide excellent onthe-water (skill) and classroom (knowledge) training. On the water and classroom - SailCanada (sailing.ca) for Learn to Cruise Standards. Look up your provincial sailing association for a Learn to Cruise instructor or school near you. Classroom instruction - the Canadian Power and Sail Squadrons (cps-ecp.ca) have taught boating safety for decades. In the US, look for US Power Squadrons for classroom-based training or American Sailing Association and US Sailing for hands-on training. In Part 3, we will look at some of the technical aspects of getting ready to cruise, including charging systems (alternator, solar and shore power), heads and waste management and tips on provisioning for extended coastal cruising. * We are Proud to Support Canadian Power and Sail Squadrons with their Programs to Educate Boaters and Increase the Safety of Boaters Everywhere.
