My apologies for the confusion! The night passage was unrelated to the school.

Poor sentence structure...

It was my first night passage after becoming a sailor so to speak. I was on a boat owned by a captain who did exactly as you said Jackdale. He was just surprised that the school never even showed us a chart, among other things.

Inky: it's not the same school you went to. And it was the basic keelboat cruising course.

Our on water instructor was actually pretty good. The school, not so much. It could have been worse though. The other half of the class got a different instructor, one day he was teaching Mediterranean mooring for some reason. We could hear him talking about how to dock a 50 foot sailboat in Greece or something .... and our instructor mumbled something to the effect of "Yah like that's exactly what your students need to learn".
