GIMS Rights - certification procedure: Regulations and Rules 2022 (Part 5)

Cancellation of S-sail restrictions:
Opening the category “sailing vessel" until March 22nd, we received the initial category “up to 22 m2". A further increase to “80 m2” became possible after 2 years (by the way, regardless of whether you walked during this period or did not see sails in your eyes), and then the opening of the “unlimited” category if you have 2 years of swimming experience and a decorated logbook with a certain number of miles found.
This restriction was advisable - 22 m”, the wrong area, the size of the vessel is not large, and accordingly the possibility of doing something is not great. Beach catamaran mode. By the time the category can be upgraded, those who need and are interested in the sail gain experience, and those who initially handed over “so that everything would be” by this time will not remember about it, which already cuts off some of the potentially dangerous units. Only the most stubborn people who really need it reached the category of “unlimited”)))

The level of preparation of the examinees is critically low, which potentially provokes the appearance of untrained boatmasters on vessels of the Kruzenshtern scale. Well, give or take…
In addition, it is dangerous for the inspector signing the examination card. On the one hand, it is a pity for a person, the number of attempts is limited and no one really undertakes to teach him, on the other hand, if something happens to this person, the inspector will be to blame.

Cancellation of the simplified certification procedure:
The old regulations provided for the possibility, in the presence of a certain type of documents (a boatmaster's diploma, international boatmaster's certificates, sports certificates and many others), to obtain a certificate for the right to operate a small vessel in GIMS in a simplified manner.
Now, alas, such an opportunity is not provided. There is no trial either. Unless the number of attested persons increases, and therefore the burden on the inspection…
