That's common, isn't it? I can still remember when I first started sailing and had the boom hit my head so many times.. My head felt twice the size on certain parts when I came back on shore!! :???:

PPCDL

Hi James,

As long as the boat is registered under the MPA as a Powered Pleasure Craft under SZ boat, you can drive it with PPCDL.

By the way, James, do you intend to get a boat?

hello,
into watersport since many years, and could not convert my foreign licence, i just received PPCDL now and very interested in boating,
any questions, let me know.

watch out this is tricky, think about it... as a sailer you need your engine to get in or out the harbour...or even at open sea at that moment you are a motorvessel wich requires PPCDL!!!! I don"t know how strict they are but knowing Singapore,.... law is law!

hello,
i did my lessons via Capt Jon Lum hp 97111411 normally it takes 2 days theoretical and 1 day practical, but can go faster if you have a bit of experience.

Once you pass there than you go upstairs to ask for your practical testdate, this will be on a saturday and is allways at the Polymarina, next to RSYC.
There are 3 sessions per saturday, with 3 boats and each session 4 people, you go per 2 in a boat and and switch turn, after that they will also ask you some questions one to one. I had to wait for a month to do so after my theoretical...
hope this helps, any questions pls ask
best regards and good luck,
