I've just put in an application form to do a Day Skipper course at JSASTC in June. Does anybody have any idea how popular these courses are? Being in the OTC, I appreciate that I'm not exactly top of the pile when it comes to picking the successful applicants but it would be nice to get an idea of how likely I am to get on the course I want. With regard to the course itself, can anyone recommend any good learning materials, especially something with navigation/chartwork exercises? Also, does JSASTC provide waterproofs etc? I couldn't find anything on their website.
