PB 2 Course Needed Solent 29/10 to 3/11

Hi,

Can anyone fit my 17 year old son into a PB2 Course any of the days 29/10 (sun) to 3/11 (fri) inclusive. He has quite a lot of expereince but tends to view the boat as only having two throttle positions . He is close to instructor level on dinghies.

Farfetched is currently having a fuel leak sorted out so may not be available. We are in Lymington - he could walk from the house to any of the quays / marinas here or even ferry to Yarmouth or could get on a train. He does not drive yet.

If it turns out he really can do PB2 in a day, and you are training him 1 to 1, we would like the second day to focus on rough weather handling....

Please PM me or call on 07734889987

Thanks

Bruce

Make him pay for the fuel - he will soon learn that the trottle setting is analogue rather than digital!

Maybe not in farfetched, as its quite good on fuel - but he'd definately start realising it in mine
