I understand the reasoning behind selling a book to students, and I agree with it as the two books you mention make very concise reference manuals I didn't word my handout suggestion very well! It's more to do with Adding Value than the RYA curriculum
What I meant to say is that if your student is going to be a trailer sailor and is new to it, during launching and recovery do you empahsise the curse of the trailer bearing If so should we give em a handout that explains trailer maintenance or at least a link to reference point telling where em where to get spare parts for trailer and articles about towing.
Safety Kit does one give them links to to get safety stuff from and give a list of what they need!
ASFAIK there isn't a standard little test at the end of the course.....should we standardise one through this forum?
If the person is gonna be a ribber do we tell em how to sort a puncture out at sea?
Also if the people on the course wated to drive a 32 foot boat that was never going to be trailered does one need to go through the launch and recovery stage, or just the theory
It strikes me that talking about the exclusion zone Kinda dovetails into explainig attraction as well as chart work
I could go on
