About 2 - 3 hrs drive, depending on which scenic route you choose. And thinking about towing as well, the A350 would be a nightmare, so it would be via Salisbury, and that's become sooo easy, done it so many times now. What part of the harbour is the Poole school at?

And hey, the south-west may sound like a big area to cover, but I don't know how many schools are out there. I'm considering the overnighting aspect, too, so the Poole area, or Brixham/Dartmouth or Tiger Bay (no overnight needed, short drive over the bridge) would all be good.

Honest, I thought you'd all be singing each other's praises, and I wouldn't get a straight answer out of any of you. Thanks for talking to the newbie. It's good not to get treated like an idiot...

I've done a number.......

...........of courses at http://www.professional-powerboat-training.co.uk/
who are based in Pwllheli which is in North Wales. I appreciate it's a bit of a hike, however I'd thoroughly recommend this place as both Jono Gorton (who can be found on here) is a super fella and his facilities are superb. Further, by doing your course in an area unfamiliar to you to get the benefit of exploring areas you may not get to during your normal cruising outings. Jono would also be able to recommend a number of very good B&B's. Anyway, just a thought - best of luck.

p.s He's always willing to put a good deal together for Ribnet members but don't tell anyone else
