YWAM Ships Kona and YWAM Kona UofN partnered together recently to bring Introduction to Safety and Seamanship to YWAM Alotau, Papua New Guinea.

Captain Ann Ford was able to facilitate a week of training to students who mostly have a limited boating experience beyond canoes.

The seminar is designed to provide training for students to be competent crew members on small sailing vessels. They received a basic understanding of safety and seamanship as well as a biblical foundation for the ship ministry.

Reading a chart, finding latitude and longitude, plotting a course, safety equipment, anchoring, first aid, and using a compass were just a few of the subjects that were taught.

Captain Ann also highlighted crewing opportunities with YWAM Ships. The seminar was one week long, with 47 students ages 16 – 55.
