Difficulty Grades Explained

Difficulty Grades

At all times our crew will be available to assist and guide as much as possible.

Green = Customer require to be independently mobile with a level of agility to allow:

• Embarking/disembarking from the slipway to/ from the boat.
• Moving around the boat including stepping over a knee-high threshold and down 2 steps to access the cabin space.

• Steady footing if standing when the boat is underway in choppy seas.

Yellow = Customers require to be independently mobile with a level of agility to allow:

• Embarking/disembarking from the slipway to/ from the boat.
• Moving around the boat including stepping over a knee-high threshold and down 2 steps to access the cabin space.
•Steady footing if standing when the boat is underway in choppy seas.

• A possible requirement to transfer ashore and back using a dinghy. This would involve stepping down 2 steps (possible kneeling) off the main boat into a dinghy which may be subject to unsynchronised movement and likewise out of the dinghy onto slipway/ jetty and reverse of this process when returning to the main boat. A possibility of shoes and feet becoming wet through this process.

Red = Customers require to be independently mobile with a level of agility to allow:

• Embarking/disembarking from the slipway to/ from the boat.
• Moving around the boat including stepping over a knee-high threshold and down 2 steps to access the cabin space.
• Steady footing if standing when the boat is underway in choppy seas.
• A possible requirement to transfer ashore and back using a dinghy. This would involve stepping down 2 steps (possible kneeling) off the main boat into a dinghy which may be subject to unsynchronised movement and likewise out of the dinghy onto slipway/ jetty and reverse of this process when returning to the main boat. A possibility of shoes and feet becoming wet through this process.
• Landing ashore by dinghy will be onto rough rocks with no jetty or slipway. The landing process may feel quite adventurous with the need to move quickly as dinghy may be experiencing considerable movement in a choppy sea. There is a likelihood of water on the dinghy floor resulting in a possibility of footwear and feet becoming wet.
