Boating Training for Expedition Employees:
In 2018 Rib School Scheveningen started a RYA sailing school on the expedition ship M / V Sea Spirit, which sails to both Antarctica and Arctica. The increasing demand to certify personnel on expedition vessels with the RYA Powerboat Level 2 was the immediate reason for this.
Our International Sailing School at Scheveningen was founded 10 years ago in 2009. We have taught in recent years to the National Police, Rijkswaterstaat, Hoogheemraadschap and many private individuals, including expats, refugee workers, deckhands on super-yachts and also expedition employees.
Last winter we sailed on the expedition ship M / V Sea Spirit, so we now know from personal experience what you can expect. Especially for future expedition employees we intend to purchase an identical Zodiac mil pro MK V with Yamaha 60 HP.
The steering and boating characteristics with a tiller are slightly different than on a rib with a steering wheel and a throttle. We have put together training where we teach you to be able to work on an expedition ship in extreme areas.
How do you deal with passengers sitting on the beam at the side, how stable are you, how do you drive through ice. You learn to deal with a GPS to find the mother ship again. We also learn how to ‘land’ on the beach.
