Earlier this autumn I had the opportunity to teach a Day Skipper course up on the East Coast It was great to work with Hamilton Sailing and overall the course was a good success. I'm booked back with them for several courses next year. Meanwhile my own learning continues apace. I've recently completed an Advanced Powerboat course. I am also part way through a Dinghy Instructor course. Later this month I am also booked to do an Advanced Powerboat Certificate of Competence exam and to do a powerboat instructor course. Hopefully all of this will lead to more working opportunities next year.
