Reading the CFRs, it seems that there is a clear distinction between a Sail Endorsement and an Auxiliary Sail Endorsement:
“A master or mate on vessels of 200 GRT or more, and a master or mate on vessels under 200 GRT, may be endorsed for sail or auxiliary sail as appropriate.” Or for less than 200 GRT, “In order to obtain an officer endorsement for sail or auxiliary sail vessels, the applicant must submit evidence of 12 months of service on sail or auxiliary sail vessels.”
Notwithstanding that there are very few sail vessels (w/o auxiliary propulsion) around, has anyone ever received a Sail AND an Auxiliary Sail endorsement on their license? Or does an Auxiliary Sail endorsement also cover sail-only vessels, and therefore the single Aux. Sail endorsement covers both?
