Same with me - too much computer use!!! Fine when my hands are warm but when cold - ouch!!! Still have just invested in some neoprene gloves.

I asked my instructor why I couldn't just use a caribiner to clip onto buoys etc - no comment so that is what I will do - damn site faster as well......

Managed to do quite a bit of high level climbing(ice) without being an expert at knots!!!

Cracks me up - even tells you how to tie a tie !!!

GREAT site - maybe if I practice enough - trouble is I have a memory like a sieve - only worse.

People say I would forget my balls if they weren't in a bag!!!

Is there anyone out there running a rough water handling course?

I covered it on my advanced but it was like a mill pond when we went out

One thing I REALLY need to practice though - knots - a bloody disaster

Dont worry about it codders- had the same problem with my instructor last
year. He called me kack handed - and I am still trying to find out what he ment. I think its due to the fact that both you and me spend too much time with keyboards. Agree about the bit of paper bit and in fact the only way you are gong to learn anything is to get in your rib and go out alone... you either come back or you don't......

The VHF SRC course is different and you have to pass a written test at the end..... Book yourself in that one as well.

I am sure the bloke who taught me would be up for it - Swansea may be a bit far for you to come though!!!
