Spent a warm day last week on the water teaching a <a href="" target="_blank">Basic Outboard Standard</a>&nbsp; course. If you have access to a boat with an outboard, then you may benefit from the course which covers boat handling, weather, basic chart reading, regulations and boating etiquette as well as other topics.

Want the standard, however, no boat?  My client rented a boat from <a href="" target="_blank">Victoria Boat Rentals</a>&nbsp; at Port Sidney Marina, for the day and hired me to teach the standard.
