It’s been a great week at Falmouth with Cornish Cruising studying for my Yachtmaster Theory certificate. It had been a long time since I did any proper Navigation… 16 years to be honest! So I was really worried about how I would find it. Another ‘El Guapo’ were lights and signals… I had been working through the Flip-Cards but I really wasn’t getting to grips with them at all!
I needn’t have worried though because the amazing Simon Rabett was on hand to get me through the course material and made sure that I passed the course! Much hard study was done every night in the Marina bar which, incidentally, serves great food! And I even got to ‘borrow’ the sailing school Dog for cuddles.
Falmouth Marina was lovely as well with the nicest showers (maybe they just felt the nicest because it was so bloody cold outside!) and I imagine that in the summer, the town is a very lovely place to be.
I can hardly wait until January when I am booked on to the Yachtmaster practical course! Toot Toot!
(thats a turn to Port btw! Lol)
