Ahoy Seafarers! We have a great news for you! This time on Sea Safe Perth Boating School, we are going to talk about boat handling. We are going to discuss what you will learn in boat handling and why you should learn it. How about we start with the basics?

So there you are, with your new boat. You bought one because you thought it would be easy to handle it. Well, you are wrong, it could be the worst idea. But don’t pout and get grumpy just yet. When we said it was wrong, we mean it could be pretty difficult for a beginner who does not even know the fundamentals of seafaring. And yes, it is difficult to drive on waters, you have to be trained for you to be able to handle a boat well and not end up like in the Titanic movie, not that their captain is not well-trained but… well… you know, you get the point, the Titanic sunk, and you sure don’t want to sink too, right? Anyway, let’s continue with our topic. So we’re all here to know what is discussed on boat handling lessons at Sea Safe Perth Boating School. Okay then, if everybody is prepared… wait, what’s that? Oh yeah, I almost forgot, we’re also here to know the reasons why we should learn boat handling. Then let’s get on with it.
