Somehow I passed. Whew. It was an intense 17 days. Denis (pictured here at the helm of Celtic Mist, the training boat) and I studied some fairly long hours together and became good friends during the course. Denis also passed and I think he is now running a charter boat in the BVI with his girlfriend. Not a bad way to go...
It feels good to be done and I am really looking forward to getting back to my family but also my boat! It will be nice to get sailing on Swingin' on a Star again. I do have some new checklists to go through when I get home, not to mention 5 tons of ships stores from the US to unpack.
