Although the MacFoulie does not count towards any official certification, you do gain bragging rights in the club to be one of the many members who have been MacFouled 🙂
MacFoulies are part of our clubs Confidence Cruise Sailing Series that is members sharing their collective knowledge. The Series consists of; (1) MacFoulies (2) Securing for the Night (3) Night Sailing.
I’ve completed all of the CYA cruising and navigation courses (except offshore) and have gained valuable knowledge from them and to my understanding can be a skipper-for-hire with this certification. I took all of my certifications through Cooper Boating on Granville Island. It was costly and took a lot of time studying and going to the classes but was worth it.
