Distress

Customer feedback

Adam Power said: ":) Just got though the course having been quite certain that I would be unable at my age to absorb, retain and reproduce any new information. However with Bob's clear and patient instruction I surprised myself and in the end felt quite confident that I could trick the examiner into believing that I know enough to pass! I may even be able to remember how to relay a comprehensible distress message under real stress conditions. Lets hope class of 04/02/14 never need to use mayday in practice. Happy sailing!"
