That sounds like the kind of stuff I need to know about - I will get a bit of experience with my boat first then book myself onto the course.

Its a bit of a "chicken and egg" conundrum but this is the best time of the year to spent on the theory and believe me it is a never ending learning curve.

Good point, but I still need to get some practical experience following my Power boat 1 & 2 a few months ago, then spend some time messing about in my boat.

Im still at the stage of "all the gear and no idea".

Poole next week for my VHF course and the weekend spend down there should help a bit.

It sounds as if you are on the ball re training

Enjoy your VHF course - proper comm's is one of the hallmarks of good seamanship
