Yacht-master Veronique Claus takes us on our first tender lesson
It was so good to finally have “Gumnut” united with Eucalyptus. Our Yacht-master instructor, Veronique Claus was keen to see us competent to use this means of transport, so our first lesson began.
Shelley (who is writing this) was needing instruction from scratch. An early near-miss of another stationary boat was nearly a casualty. The lesson continued with more control.
Jill had been in tenders previously but never driven one. She took to it like a duck to water. We headed for the Chandlery, to buy small fenders for the tender. What a pleasant surprise to arrive in fifteen minutes, via the water, rather than the forty five minutes by foot.
We love our OC tender!
