Re: Boat Captain's Licence

Hi John,

Any personal help/info you can give me would be much appreciated.
I want to take the sail boat certificate, as I am ken to buy a boat, perhaps
late this year, or next, and sail on The Bodensee.
I'm lucky in that I live right on the water, so the opportunity is irresistable!
Hope to hear from you.

best regards bodidris / Robert

It is really not that difficult to pass the boating theory test, which is needed for both motor or sail boats, with no German whatsoever. I did it last summer.

With a licence boat rental is normally about 40chf an hour from Geneva to Constance. There is also a club you can join for a deposit of 400chf and then use boats within the club all over Switzerland. You do not have to own a boat to join, again, it's the licence that is needed.

I am tempted to post a link to my web page, but will wait for another few days then post it in the commercial section. Until then anybody who wishes to learn how I can help with both the theory and practical sailing test please email me directly.
