Pre-requisites:Students MUST be able to swim at least 50 metres.
This course provides an introduction/extension 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 model boats from fibreglass, wood and metal. Studies in the marine and coastal environment will also be included.
This course is offered as an extension to Boating 10.1 however students may enter the subject not having attempted the first semester course.
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).
