I agree with Paul, but please feel free to come and get some experience on the coast.

Andy

We are running training & teaching skills and syllabus familiarisation (non RYA) 5th - 14th February followed by an RYA Instructor Course 15th, 16th, 17th February.

Hi Paul,

As with many things, people tend to move onwards and upwards and if Steve intends (although no intent was mentioned by him) to carry on with getting or adding coastal experience, as a PB2 holder, a natural progression COULD be to go on to the advanced course at a coastal centre, thus killing the proverbial two birds with one stone...

Just thoughts,

Gordon...

Ahh Dave M - had to laugh at your 'observation' above - he taught my PBI course....and he is a grumpy old sod but worth his weight in gold as an Instructor...!

I think Steve is talking about a different endorsement. If memory serves, if you do an RYA course on inland waters, you can't teach in coastal waters unless you get the 'coastal' bit 'endorsed' on your certificate.

The easiest way is to do the course in a coastal location.

At least - I THINK that's what he meant......!!
