Josh Heafield, who is in Grade Five at Laddsworth Primary School, completed a nine day Offshore Sailing Academy course in Durban last week. After an intense 9 days at sea, he successfully completed and passed the Day Skipper Exam and Yacht Hand Course, achieving a pass rate of over 75%.

This involved a theory and navigation exam as well as a practical sailing assessment to determine his competency at sea. Josh is able to skipper a power or sailing vessel not greater than 25m or 100 tons.

At age 11, Josh is one of the youngest students to have ever succeeded in completing this course.
