No - can you enlighten us ?
Chris - I did similar to you last year and the thing that I guess will always be the challenge is the night part. I just went out and practised getting used to it more and more.
I'd go out in the dark for fun quite a bit and cruising at 20knts up the solent in the middle of a big channel is very differant to finding a small unlit bouy...
As has been said have plan for everything and several of everything in your head at least that way if one thing doesn't work you have another option.
Being able to do everything to the letter is fine, but a better demonstration of skill is what you can do when things aren't going to plan .
