Passed it!

Conditions at Whitby interesting though, river Esk swollen from torential rain the night before so running fast with numerous large trees and logs about. Then out the harbour into some nice swell. The new 4 bladed prop worked as I had expected it to, we will need to test it fully loaded now.

Didnt get any pictures sadly as we were being assessed up until we came out of the water.

Well done

Well done on passing the course both of you.
Glad to hear that you enjoyed the experience. Pass on the good news to a s many boaters as possible, the more people that are trianed the better.
Intermediate is certainly something to consider but get a few hours under your belt first.

Well Done Simon,
Good fun innit!
Although mine was the 'non dive' level 2 we did touch on divers, then the instructor pointed out that little blue and white flag and it didn't happen again!!

It was good fun, the next day we were covering a small party of shore divers with a large diveflag "A" three jet skiers hammered into the small bay were our divers were, either totally oblivious or not giving a toss.

Jet skiers dont do themselves any favours doing this sort of thing. We werent able to go over and have a frank exchange of view which is just as well really. Anyway as you said intermediate after I have mastered rough water handling and perfect trim.
