Lessons learnt

I have, once again, had the pleasure of helping some Wooden Boat Association members tie knots.  My plan was to cover a handful of simple knots and get every one to make a small key fob with 3mm line by the end of the night.

I think I succeeded in confusing the hell out of every one.  Still, there were some very good lanyard knots completed and I think every one had a good time.  Congratulations to every one for keeping their sailors swearing to a minimum.

I guess I won't be launching my teaching career any time soon.

Here are my youtube training videos in case any one wants to practice.
