First Lecture: Charts

Monday, October 2nd, 2006 at 22:02 | by Alistair Baillie

Well the weekend was unfortunately really boring, and very windy with lots of rain. It also seems to be staying rather cold so at least the temperatures are reminding us Scot’s of home – pity about the gale force winds which make it absolutely freezing! Some of the girls were doing their power boat course this weekend and got absolutely soaked, I’ve still got a few weeks until mine and hopefully it will at least not be gale force winds.

Today was our first day of proper lectures. I am in group one, along with the two other David’s who are with Island (and also happen to both be Scottish). Normally we would have double maths first thing between 0900 and 1200, but luckily it doesn’t start until the 3rd week of lectures. So I went to the post office to send my sisters birthday present home to her.

After lunch it was our very first lecture “Charts” which ran from 1300 to 1600, after everyone eventually found the correct room after we all went to the wrong room cause none of us read the time table properly, we got given our very first chart – which was of the Bristol Channel. The lesson was interesting focussing on how to read them and what information is contained on them. We did a few exercises before leaving.

I then went into Warsash to get a chart holder since we need to keep them safe or it costs us £5 to get a new one.

After dinner I didn’t really do much. Warsash has very little to do, although I did go a nice long 2ish hour walk along the beach at 2000, and got back around 2200.
