Students must be able to swim at least 50 metres.
This course provides an introduction to sail, power and other water craft. Practical experience in the handling of these craft will be covered as well as the design and construction of small model boats from wood, metal and fibreglass.
Studies of the marine and coastal environment will also be included.
Students will need to be prepared to be part of a flexible timetable arrangement for this subject to enable practical sessions to be undertaken in the ocean near Hillary’s Marina (this could mean early starts or lessons over lunch or recess).
