The Learning Section

Most of us realise that however long we have been sailing there is always something new to be learned, or some forgotten fact that needs to be revisited.

Therefore it is appropriate that from time to time there are things which can be brought to the attention of members.  If there is something which could or should be shared send it to the webmaster via the office.

The latest information from the RYA

will help find courses and also help us promote our club.  See Where’s My Nearest/Which Course

The Forth is rather cold

if you are unexpectedly plunged into it.  Also that if you are wearing a lifejacket your chances of survival are greatly increased.

Have a look at these superb videos explaining the effect of falling into cold water:  Cold Water Boot Camp and Cold Water Shock – wear a lifejacket.

Why is a “Boom” so called?

Because it’s the noise it makes when it hits your head!

If you’re on an unfamiliar boat, it’s your responsibility to make sure you know where it’s safe to stand, where to keep your head down, and if you are in the danger zone, make sure the helmsman is aware and satisfy yourself that there is no risk of an accidental gybe.

If you’ve got people on your boat who aren’t used to it or you, make sure they know the danger zone and stay out of it, and be doubly careful to be aware of any risk of accidental gybes.
