how many were there with you being instructed or did you do it one on one
and are you in the pics? you should post a pic with you in it....
I have always said experience is FAR more important than bits of paper - after doing my course I still maintain that - the advanced would be a better bet but you have to have done level 2 first!!!
There were 2 of us doing the course - I had to keep apologising for being such a terrible passenger - I am the same in a car - Jekyl and Hyde transformation when I get behind the wheel though!!!
I must say again the instructor was excellent - he had to be to put up with me - I am one of those people who can't be taught anything - have to learn for myself!!!
One thing I REALLY need to practice though - knots - a bloody disaster!!!
