I feel like a dope, but I can never find my way out of base when leaving at night without hitting something. Any tips? Thanks in advance.

Wilhelmshaven, don't turn or do anything until you clear the breakwater (light towers)

Kiel, do a 20 degree turn starboard after exiting the pen and wait until you clear the breakwater.

At Kiel do you mean after clearing the pen area hug the east coast? If I go 20 deg to starboard after leaving the pen I will hit a wall. I hit a sandbar in the strait just after leaving the pen area last night and it ticket me off! Flooding before I even cleared harbor! http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/51.gif

Another thing you might be able to do is shoot some starburst from the deck gun to help navigate out some. Then hit F5 and plot your course.
