Down to Poole in Dorset very early this morning. I have finally got my act together to take the RYA Day Skipper course and spent the day learning to navigate using charts, pencil and paper. The maths reminds me of the boys’ A-Level homework and although despite being geeky enough to look up the cosine rule, drawing scale models of the “triangles of velocity” is probably quicker . 😉

The weather was very changeable, I wonder what the week will bring. Here’s the route I took…


The map clicks through to the google version. Four nights on the boat, five days on the water, three days in the class room and an exam at the end. Thank you Moonfleet Sailing.
