Stardate 61721.79 - Coastal Cruising

Tonight I start the ASA course 103: Basic Coastal Cruising. I've already completed 101: Basic Keelboat and 105: Coastal Navigation. We're working right now on scheduling a trip to the BVIs for January where I'll take 104: Bareboat Chartering. I'm taking 103 through the Manhattan Sailing School (where I also took 101 and 105).

There is a 2-hour "classroom" session on the boat tonight, and then 2 full days on the boat (a J/105) Saturday and Sunday. Sunday evening we take the exam. I have not prepared for this one as much as I did for 101, and I don't have the multiple weeks of homework and studying as I did for 105, so I hope I pass the exam the first time through. It will be quite embarrassing if I don't! Wish me luck!!

Good luck. If we end up posted in the Bahamas (a possibility), you can sail out and visit us sometime.

I shouldn't have worried - I got the highest grade in the class on the written exam - a 99 (I missed 2, each worth 0.5 points).
