Not exactly a cruise....

Over the next few weeks I will be going out at night from Poole to practice night nav in prep for my commercial exam. Doing this alone is not only hard , but stupid...... so if anyone wants to come along please let me know. Will take another 2 each time and will be doing a few trips of a few hours each time.

Good practice and experaince of multi crew operation .....

Please let me know.

You know who you are & I will PM email/call some directly ...

Yep - now have 5 'up for it' during Jan - hopefully when its back to + degrees was horrid in the snow with it blasting into my sunglasses.... Have been talking to 'a well known' school in poole and just want to practice and give things the thought they deserve before hand.

Prior preparation and all that .......
