Re: Cruising Skills/Practice

Hey Sully, There is always more to learn, I would focus on nightime nav, light ID on ships and shore, making sure chartplotter has AIS, paperplotting, logkeeping.
Re MOB, I prefer teaching my own method, spotter, immediate beam reach, (works upwind or down dowse chute if up) collect wits,tack to hove too, dive below target, come up, stop near target. Practice, practice.
Enjoy learning!
