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.

We turn to the professionals to stop the small leak in our dinghy and learn some good tips to repairing a hypalon dinghy. Thanks so much A Sailor's Place http://bit.ly/ASailorsPlace I think the biggest mistake we made was not cutting down the brush bristles so when I applied the glue it was a little thick and globby. I also may not have ground down the material good enough. I hope this helps you learn a bit about repairing a Hypalon dinghy like the professionals.

Whether you are a leisure or a professional sailor, you know how important it is to have a reliable power supply so that your electronics continue to function properly - especially far out at sea. Victron Energy offers a broad range of equipment designed specifically with you and your on board power system in mind. We proudly present to you a new era in freedom and independence. 'Service' batteries provide power for everything except for 'engine-starting'. Demand for on-board electricity has to be matched with an adequate battery bank. Lithium Batteries provide the best solution for high power demand. Compared to lead/acid technology they are smaller and about 70% lighter for their capacity. They can be deeply discharged, without harm. More current is available throughout the discharge cycle …and they can be cycled thousands of times - resulting in a much longer service life. It is also 'easier' to drive power back into Lithium batteries - so charging-time is reduced.

When sailors are talking about their boats they often refer to ratios and numbers. That´s a tendency in human behaviour to try to generalize things to make them comparable. Of course, everybody knows that you cannot really describe apple to pears and so it´s worthless to describe a let´s say Seventies IOR-era King´s Cruiser 33 like mine to a modern day cruising yacht but we nevertheless tend to do so. The Displacement-Length-Ratio in general is a non-dimensional number. It sets into relation the displacement of a boat (expressed in pounds) to the length of her waterline (in feet). So, in general, this ratio is looking for the relation between the (heavy?) volume of water being pushed aside by a boat´s hull and the length (and therefore speed potential see for my article Hull speed vs. Froude number here) of her hull. Sounds fair enough?
