oops

Second day was F6 ish and a little on the lumpy side - visibility turned pretty poor for the afternoon


Will post pics as soon as i get my camera returned to me.


Conclusion

We didnt run 1:6 we ran 3 : 1 in 2 boats - which , was just as well as the smaller boat broke down on the first evening.
An evening / day of theory & Navigation prior to the course would have been good for the students

Conditions and events were superb for highlighting how quickly things change / happen at sea - much better than the usual and 'some times it can get lumpy or what if we had to get involved in....'

Did the students pass ? No.
All are signed up for an evening of navigation and then off to do the course again.

Were they disapointed? No.

On stepping out the boat on return - wet, knackered and weather beaten they all said with huge smiles - Brilliant weekend!


Photos to be added soon...
