I took the Practical Test today and failed. Can you talk salty? I can! There werer 25 knot winds and 3 foot waves and I had trouble seeing the mark that I was trying to pick up. I cleaned my glasses and found the mark, but those waves stopped the boat every time. I wasn't able to sheet in fast enough to get up boat speed to get there. So there you have it. I haven't decided if I have time to take the test again. Going to sleep on it and look at my schedule.
