Re: RYA schools around the world (almost)

Thanks! From his blog it looks like he sometimes works with Dave from Discovery Sailing, do you know if they're affiliated, or just friendly neighbours? I've talked to Dave on the phone, but not...

Re: discovery sailing, NS?

Thanks c25! I talked to him on the phone, and he seems pretty down to earth. I'm just trying to do my due diligence before potentially flying across the country.

RYA schools around the world (almost)

I'm planning to take some classes, probably through the RYA (although I'm open to people convincing me to use another system). I live in BC, my SO lives in Sweden, and the only Canadian RYA...

Re: industrial/commercial PFDs

I've been paddling canoes and kayaks in whitewater all my life, and I still can't swim in a foam pfd with any kind of speed or efficiency. Especially not over a great distance. If I were to come off...

Re: C&C 25 MkII

Hmmm, it looks to me like it would be a lot harder to shift the C&C overland, is that fair to say? However, it also looks like it would be a much better boat to run up the outside with, once I get to...
