Yacht Rating Class - August group

Our August Yacht Rating class had a very interesting excursion. Our Yacht Rating lecturer Jumaine Kruger took his class to the Durban's Harbour Maritime Museum on 16 of August. The Durban Maritime Museum is one of a kind in its own right. You can walk among the vessel and go below the deck. giving the students a better understanding of what they have learnt in class. The Museum has an exhibition hall and a number of small craft. The 75-year-old Ulundi, with its coal fired engine is the oldest of the ships on display. 

Jumaine also caught our August RIB students on camera, well done to the Yacht Rating guys and girls for doing an outstanding job on your RIB practices.

Main Story

Allen goes to PYT USA

Allen (PYT Officer Manager) visited the States earlier this year.

Allen got to spend one on one time with PYTUSA by introducing and helping out with their quality management systems in order to provide MCA courses to our future students in the industry.

Allen took some amazing pictures while he was in Fort Lauderdale and in New York and thought we would share them with our students.
