Thanks for the literature - I'll be sure to check them out. Having grown up on the Menai Straits I'm used to strong tides, so am looking forward to it. Rule of 12ths out the window eh? Hmm, that should make for interesting times.
I've already heard about the PCOC, so will sign myself up for that. Having taken the RYA shorebased Day Skipper course, I think I should have a grounding in the nav aspect, but would be keen to brush up over the winter and revisit some stuff. Are correspondence courses common? I'm going to be working away from home quite a bit for the first wee while, so would have evenings free from getting the kids to bed.
Wow, just looked up the Curve of Time on Amazon - what a story, and what a woman! It reminds me a little of Leaves from Rowan's Logs, which does a similar thing for W Coast Scotland.
