Southern Yachting Academy students Michael Rosenmann, Jaco Yssel, Richard Whittaker and Roxy de Saint Pernsa demonstrate in this video how to retrieve a Man Over Board (MOB) using the figure of eight method.
The August Day Skipper Course in Mossel Bay with 20-30 kt winds most days made this an adventure to remember with this sailors confidently racing the yacht between buoys and way points on the fifth day. Nice sailing fellas!
Completing a coastal passage from Knysna and night entry into Mossel Bay, the Henderson brothers (Josh, Ben and Sam), Stephen Winter, Hennie du Preez and Mark Orpen settle into a week of offshore sailing training off Cape St Blaize. The warm hospitality of the Port Control, local guest houses, restaurants, the awesome cooking from Annette du Preez, the great sailing in a sheltered bay made this a memorable week of fun, laughter, learning new skills and generally a great adventure. Southern Yachting Academy hopes to enjoy the town during August with more offshore Day Skipper students during August 2020.
