Ahoy shipmates, a land-lubber here.

Does anyone know anything about, or has been on the joint PDF / RDF Dinghy sailing course carried out most years ?

What does it involve ?

According to an Cosantoir, an intermediate course is being run this year. Do they run beginner / basic courses aswell ?

Each NSR unit has it's own 2 dinghys, ( BP18 ( Crew 8pers. rig for sail or oar)) they are used as required on field days and no formal advertised courses are run. The PDF may have such courses but we have never bothered with them because we are at a comparable or higher level.

Not exactly an operational aspect of the DF ??? Almost up there with the equitation school.
