Looking for commercial endorsements and/or the more advanced amateur tickets (Coastal to Ocean).
I have a red & green vision deficiency, while I am not completely colour blind. And while sometimes it takes me a while to recognise the colour of a distant buoy or a light, I do fare quite well while navigating. Due to many factors, sometimes seeing it first despite everything, and sometimes just knowing what should be where, I often know what's going on before better-sighted mates do.
Does anyone have experience if RYA/MCA are willing to issue restricted tickets for the 'colour blind' like me, or perhaps even equate practical abilities over the medical exam?
This is embarrassing, never been in trouble (quite the opposite) in practice, .. until reading up what they want.
