Sooke Sailing Association has a certified VHF instructor now

Having someone local will make it way easier for Sooke Sailing Association to hold VHF ROC-M with DSC certification right here in Sooke. Gord Fulcher was recently certified by Canadian Power and Sail Squadron to run the program in Sooke.  

There is no age restriction on persons applying for an ROC (M).  The regulations call for ANYONE in charge of operating a Marine Band radio to be certified.    


You need this! Offered to Power Boaters and Sailors.                                                                                                        


 It’s the LAW


VHF Radio Operator’s course Includes the new DSC endorsement.

Canadian Power & Sail Squadrons is the only Federal Government approved organization in Canada that teaches this course and issues your lifetime certificate (no annual renewals required, it’s good for life).

The $121.35 fee includes a 4 hour review, examination by your instructor, the issuance of the certificate and the course materials.
