Hi, what should he (and me) expect? He is a lovely kid, but he's disorganised, untidy and 'gobby'. How the heck is he going to cope?

Disorganised and untidy are pretty easy to sort out with some stern direction and rigid timetables, very common amongst new recruits. Gobbiness will disappear on Day 1 if he demonstrates it in front of the staff, he'll regret he said anything if they hear him!

The Directing Staff will mould him into a fine sailor, I'm sure.

Thanks for the advice Wingdad. He has never been gobby at college or scouts - I think he actually works better in a structured environment, so fingers crossed. Still not convinced that he will return as a tidy and organised young man....we shall see!
