Lloyd (member subzero) does an excellent coarse down here at Victoria Point (sth east brisbane). Would be well worth the travel down to brissy for the day.

Sammys - send him a PM - he is pretty good with replying - he has a course on the 1st March - I think he said in a previous post that all spots were full though....someone might pull out and you could get in - I don't know.....

Gidday fellas, yes sorry but I am really getting really pushed on these radio courses at the moment and they are filling very quickly when I put them up. At the moment i have people waiting for spots to become available as well and I think that this has a lot to do with one of the Taffes just sends all their students to me now rather than run their own courses. (One of the blokes on a course I did at MBTBC was telling me so that explains why I am getting so busy with them)
I will be putting up an April course as soon as I get a chance to sort out a date that doesn't clash with other commitments.
I am really sorry, I just cant take any more people on this one and I will get on with the next one as soon as time permits.

sammy, I have replied top both your pm and your email.

Cheers Lloyd

I do power boat and jet ski licences but I do know someone who does VHF licences at Scarborough (Redcliffe) - if you email me on sailteam@digisurf.com.au I will be able to put you in contact.

All the best
