Navigating the Solent in Lockdown

Thanks to David for a good introduction / reminder of all things navigation, from chart plotters to collision courses, and from longitude to lateral markers.  

Revision session and test – April 23rd

Like everything else this year, Thursday club evenings aren’t the same, but we’re now running lectures online each week at 8.10pm, just after we’ve all been out to join our neighbours applauding the NHS.  This week, we discovered we have the technology not only to effectively deliver a lecture, but also to run a test via Zoom.  Thanks to Nick for making it another informative and enjoyable Thursday evening gathering, and well done to all the trainees who succeeded in simultaneously holding up the correct multiple choice options and passing the test with flying colours.  

I think we should meet on the net . . . .

said our DO, after a few of weeks of lockdown, and so in April we gathered on Zoom with our various drinks and snacks and had a good chat.  We also formulated a rough schedule for the weeks ahead to get all the theory covered for our newest members so they’ll be qualified to join in with diving out in the sea once restrictions are lifted and it is safe again.
