Thank you for the suggestion. The training class was all time consuming. We started between 7:30am to 8:00 am and finished up between 5pm and 7pm, eating our lunched in the classroom. Then it was dinner, study and sleep.
I would love to meet Steve and it would be an honor to sail with him. Maybe next time I will book some free time!
