As the most experienced (been sailing since I was 4) I had the final say, though two others on the boat had experience, one a recent convert to sailing, and very keen, who had organised the trip, tended to run things minute to minute. But I was happy with that, he wants and needs experience. So I would take the boat in and out of the pontoons for example, or stand by while one of the others had a go.

The currents were surprisingly not too bad, given the massive tidal range there (up to 14 meters), we had a fairly lowish tidal coefficient (half moons) and had at most a knot of current, with a bit of confused water round one headland (but we were very close in sight seeing).

It is a fantastic area to learn to sail though, and navigate, more rocks, bouys, markers and lighthouses than you could want, and also very pretty, with good food! Smile | :)
