International Flotilla Skipper | IYT Worldwide

Saved by uncleflo on December 22nd, 2019.

Joining a “flotilla” is a fun and exciting way to learn how to confidently skipper a charter yacht for the very first time. A group of boats sail together (flotilla) along a set route, with a “lead boat”  in charge, overseeing the safety of all the boats where all the boats are within range of a VHF radio call if required. Before departing in the morning, a route is planned for the day with a set destination for the evenings so that all the boats can anchor or tie up to a mooring buoy (before dark) for the night. Generally speaking, flotillas are restricted to passages close to shore, in fair weather and in good visibility.  They are usually followed in the evenings by a beach bar-b-que or dinner together in a social atmosphere where students can swap stories and learn from each other. It is a great way to make new friends and build your confidence, while still enjoying the freedom of being in command of your own vessel with your family and friends.

This is a 3 to 4 day course, depending on wind and conditions, aimed to deliver a safe, informed, confident and competent day sailor/skipper who can confidently command a sailboat up to 10 meters (32.8 feet) and crew during daylight hours in fair conditions in inland waters (bay or lake sailing) or coastal waters up to 5 miles offshore. As you advance and become more proficient as crew or skipper you take on bigger challenges that require proper training to ensure the safety of your family and friends. The bigger the boat or length of adventure the more training you require. Most of us prefer to spend our time on the water and not in a classroom. To facilitate this, IYT has a series of E-learning courses available for the theoretical part of sail and powerboat training.

Convert your 12-29 HP diesel engine to clean, quiet electric. Eliminate noxious diesel fumes and the frustration of filling up at the pump with the 10KW Brushless Kit featuring a Motenergy brushless motor and a 48V 450 Amp Sevcon Gen-4 Controller that can produce up to 10HP continuous and 28HP peak!  Enjoy your sailboat to the fullest, with a silent drive and truly fresh air. This system is recommended for boats up to 12,000 pounds displacement. All our systems have reverse on-the-fly and contactor disable features. "Brushless" means that the motor does not have brushes that will wear out over time, nor will it be a dangerous source of ignition for on-board gas appliances. Larger boats may require a higher power AC or brushless motor. In the U.S. and Canada, brushed motors are only legal for marine use if onboard appliances and accessories use kerosene or diesel (not propane or gasoline) due to the potential for internal motor arcing.

Clipper Round The World Race

https://www.clipperroundtheworld.com/

Saved by uncleflo on October 28th, 2019.

The Clipper Race is one of the biggest challenges of the natural world and an endurance test like no other. With no previous sailing experience necessary, it’s a record breaking 40,000 nautical mile race around the world on a 70-foot ocean racing yacht. The brainchild of Sir Robin Knox-Johnston, the first person to sail solo non-stop around the world, the event is now in its twelfth edition, the Clipper 2019-20 Race. Started from London on 1 September 2019, the fleet will complete its circumnavigation when it returns eleven months later, in August 2020. Divided into eight legs and between 13 and 16 individual races, you can choose to complete the full circumnavigation or select individual legs. It is the only race in the world where the organisers supply a fleet of eleven identical racing yachts, each with a fully qualified skipper and first mate to safely guide the crew. Normally the domain of seasoned pros, this supreme challenge is taken on by ordinary, everyday people. Having completed a rigorous training course, participants are suited and booted in the latest extreme protection gear to commence the race of their lives - an unparalleled challenge where taxi drivers rub shoulders with chief executives, vicars mix with housewives, students work alongside bankers, and engineers team up with rugby players. The sea does not distinguish between Olympians or novices. There is nowhere to hide - if Mother Nature throws down the gauntlet, you must be ready to face the same challenges as the pro racer. Navigate the Doldrums en route to South America, endure epic Southern Ocean storms, experience South African sunsets, face the mountainous seas of the North Pacific - and bond with an international crew creating lifelong memories before returning victorious.

Thread: engine rpm v propshaft rpm? - YBW

http://www.ybw.com/forums/showthread.php?31815-engine-rpm-v-propshaft-rpm

Saved by uncleflo on October 6th, 2019.

On a typical sailing boat with shaft drive, does the prop turn at engine rpm? Or is there a reduction? And when the prop freewheels while under sail, what would be a typical rpm? Presumably for a given boat speed (whether sail or power), the prop rpm will be less under sail than the rpm under power for the same boat speed, and presumably this ratio is closely linked to the propeller efficiency. I know on aeroplanes that prop efficiency is around 85% - is this a realistic figure for water-screws?

The first day will be spent refreshing the skills that will be needed to pass the ICC assessment.  This will include pre-start checks and safety briefing, berthing, close quarters manoeuvres, handling under sail, man overboard practice, revision of the collision regulations, navigation techniques and pilotage. The second day will be the assessment day. There are no formal requirements but this course is not aimed at beginners.

The International Certificate of Competence (ICC) is required by most European countries (excluding the UK) as evidence of a basic level of competence. There is actually no internationaly agreed competence certificate and it is worth noting that the onus is on you to check the requirements of the state you are visiting. Member states are not obliged to accept the ICC however it is normally widely recognised. It can not be issued to nationals of UNECE Member countries unless they are British Nationals or Residents of the UK. See here for a full list of UNECE countries whose citizens are NOT able to apply for an ICC issued by the RYA.

Saved by uncleflo on August 14th, 2019.

In the past, if you were chartering in Europe, an International Certificate of Competency (ICC) may have been sufficient proof of your ability to safely operate a boat. However, it has recently been brought to our attention that a number of  European charter companies and insurance companies will not accept an ICC as sufficient proof to command a yacht for a one week bareboat charter (power or sail). These companies are insisting that the charterer should hold an IYT International Flotilla Skipper or IYT International Bareboat Skipper, power or sail  (or equivalent qualification that is on their “approved” list). The charter companies and insurance companies do not have a comfort level handing over an expensive yacht to someone who they feel is not sufficiently qualified to command it for a weeks duration.
