Module 3, day 1

The first day of the final push on the course began today.

The objective of the first 3 weeks is to rake up some miles, but more critically to allow us students a free-er rein on passage planning and full skippering responsibilities. From Friday, our skipper will de-boat and leave us to clock up 12 days uninterrupted channel cruising.

Our plans hit snag 1 less than an hour out from hamble with a very sick head sail. So off we popped to cowes for a short sharp repair. All set now, leave in the direction of the Scilly isles at 5am.

Currently holed in Yarmouth ready for a sharp exit to the needles as the tide turns.
