Day Skipper from Northern Spain

" I really loved the navigation and pilotage sections of the course, but wish I could have spent a couple more weeks aboard putting all those different transits and bearings into practice with your guidance. But I’ll be afloat again soon and can’t wait to go out and plot every single cutoff and clearing bearing imaginable within a ten-mile radius of my ría."

 

RYA Day Skipper Course on Eve - April 2016

Dear Debbie,

Now that I’m back in Madrid and all the events of last week are sinking in properly -what I learnt, so much more I still have to learn and practice- I’m feeling quite overwhelmed, apart from absolutely knackered!! It was such a massive honour to sail on Eve, which I had been dreaming about ever since reading Luke’s book, and, more particularly with you as skipper, which was an added bonus as I had no idea who would be in command when I booked. I think you’re brilliant and I feel not a little envy (what the Spanish call “envidia sana”) at the breadth of your knowledge and experience. I really loved the navigation and pilotage sections of the course, but wish I could have spent a couple more weeks aboard putting all those different transits and bearings into practice with your guidance. But I’ll be afloat again soon and can’t wait to go out and plot every single cutoff and clearing bearing imaginable within a ten-mile radius of my ría. As I said on board, the course really did exceed my expectations; I just wish we’d had more time. Also great for me was being able to play with the same running rigging as on Eltoraji (barring running backstays and the like).  I’ll be back. Definitely.

I really hope you make it to our neck of the woods this summer and will be scanning the horizon for Agnes as of July/August if you put in to Ribadeo, and will alert Martin and Pete to look out for you in Redes.

Un abrazo muy fuerte, Caroline
