Re: Don't need no lessons..just go..
I am not sure I would want to learn Colregs "hands-on." You do have to read them, know them, and adhere to them.
Agreed, however none of that requires an instructor, lessons, or paid help.
For a cruiser, certification helps with insurance rates at a small level (based on my experience). Other than that it means nothing. The card in your wallet won't float the boat.
Lessons learned are opportunities earned.
