Well jono. if anybody can capsize a rib and flip it back over without self righting gear, then your the man. Badge and T shirt come to mind.
Seriously, that looks like a top course, bet you had a great time.

Couldnt agree more, and If its in the back of your mind then your more likely
to air on the side of caution, thats why I allways.carry handheld and portable
gps on me as back up. or go out in a group.
