Training up the first mate!

Mum’s birthday present arrived yesterday!

She knows a fair bit now about sailing, but she has no formal training, only what dad has taught her. So for her birthday dad has invested in the RYA day skipper tidal yacht theory course!


Mum was soo happy! This means we’re one tide closer to our cruising dream. Mum needs to be competent and able to manage the boat on her own in case dad is ill. So this course is a great start.



It’s really interesting and mum and I got to work straight away. I’m going to study along with the course too because technically I’m the second mate (3rd in command) and I need to know what the heck is going on!

Bisous Bailey


  1. You can never be too prepared at sea!


  2. Well done you two! And good luck 😉


  3. Make sure you have your “Master of the Ship” meow at the ready also. 🙂


  4. Bailey it sounds like you are “learning the ropes” right along with your Mum!

    Kitty Hugs, Sammy


  5. What an exciting birthday present! I hope you study it well too, Bailey because what if BOTH your humans fall ill? Then it is up to YOU to take care of the boat!


  6. That looks quite interesting, and we suspect it will hold your interest until you need a stroll around the deck in the sunshine. Purrs and hugs, Lily Olivia, Misty May, Mauricio, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Josette


  7. I can see you are really good student Bailey.


  8. What a handsome and smart Second Mate you are!


  9. Great present!


  10. Great present for your Mom!!! Then everyone will be boat savvy & travelling will be a breeze!!!! So to speak 😉


I'd love to hear what you think....
