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 in the big world.
I am an adult of suitable age – retired, but in good shape – even though age is starting to show.
This is now also evident during the training, where the ability to remember is unfortunately not what it once was.
I am Norwegian, but today I live in Austria, and all sailing training is done in Croatia
But to date I have achieved Boat Skipper Category B and Boat Skipper Category C, as well as ASA 101,103 and 104.
Now 4 more courses remain under ASA, as well as Yachtmaster B 500BT
(Yachtmaster B : competent to handle and command a yacht from up to 500 GT. Acquired license is unrestricted by the yacht purpose and navigation area)
There are many nice courses from ASA , and I have a list of them that I have on my wish list:
ASA 105 : Coastal Navigation
ASA 106 : Advanced Coastal Cruising
ASA 107 : Celestial Navigation
ASA 108 : Offshore Passagemaking
Much more about this in the near future
As well as:
- How I found my sailing school and how my experience around this with acquiring sailing licenses was and is.
- What Sailboat will be best for me?
- My experience in finding a suitable sailboat
- Good Books I have found
- And where does the trip go next
If you should find what I do write here on this website as useful, I will be more than happy if you contributes and makes links to this site where it’s appropriate . Thank You
