After an intense seven days locked in a classroom at Clipper HQ in Gosport, I'm proud (and relieved) to announce that on Sunday I passed my Yachtmaster theory exam. It was a tough week with a steep learning curve but the camaraderie amongst the group on the course and a not insubstantial amount of red wine, got me through it! I'm starting to believe I might get the hang of this Sailing malarkey!  If you don't believe me read the article submitted to Scuttlebutt Europe by  Eero Lehtinen - one of the potential Race Skippers. He seems to think I'm getting the hang of it too! Scroll down to the header "A Life Changing Experience".
