How it all started

Here I will make a page about my start as a sailor.

My plan is to sell the house and move onto a suitable sailboat and hopefully – be able to travel around the big world.
I am an adult of suitable age – retired but in good shape – although age is starting to show.
This is now also evident in training, where unfortunately the ability to remember is not what it used to be.

I am Norwegian, but now I live in Austria and Croatia and all the sailing training is done in Croatia – By Adriatic Sailing Academy.

To date I have achieved
Boat Skipper Category B,
Boat Skipper Category C – 30 GT/BT,
Yacht Master B – 500 GT/BT,
ASA 101, ASA 103, ASA 104 ,
D2 – Basic Safety Trainings – STCW VI/1-4,
Restricted Operator’s certificate for the Global Maritime Distress and Safety System GMDSS (ROC)

Next will be : Advanced fire fighting STCW VI/3

There are many nice courses from ASA , and this I have on my wish list:
ASA 107 : Celestial Navigation
ASA 108 : Offshore Passage making

And I would like to have the Catamaran Endorsement ASA 114

Much more about this in the near future
