Any "graduates" of the Ocean Navigator cruises

Out of curiosity and because I have noticed several questions about sailing/navigation courses I am interested if anyone on this forum ever sailed on the Ocean Star. I made several trips with Ocean Navigator, first on the schooners belonging to Woods Hole Oceanographic and then on the Ocean Star. These were a fantastic experience lasting a week to 10 days and I will never forget my first celestial "position". There was plenty of open ocean sailing and experience to gain. Michael Carr was the captain on several of the cruises and would have sailed with him anywhere!! I was disappointed when the program ended and have never seen a similar (and as resonably priced) school since. Anyway just some thoughts and would love to hear from anyone who also sailed on the Ocean Star. Hope this is the correct section of the forum to post this note.

Someone mentioned recently having sailed on Ocean Star. Don't know if it was this Board, or Sailnet or the SSCA board. The thread, as I recall, was on celestial navigation.
