  • Hi!

    I'm David and I'm from Dundee. I was due to start the september deck intake in 2008 but the night before the course began I had to pull out. I'm absolutely desperate to get back this year but am worried that my previous application and age, I'll be thirty two next month, will go against me.

    Anyway, hi and advice or experiences from you guys is more than welcome!!!

      Currently sailing with a forst sea phase nav cadet who is 35 so, get your application in and see what happens, assuming the later pull out was for serious personal reasons (not preying) then most sponsr would probabley be ok, though it'll make a talking point in any interview (so at least you know one question to prepare for )

      No I do not report things from here to them as they are quite able to come and read this stuff for themselves.
