Fabulous 1st Day Of Sailing Course

Well after I introduced myself some time ago, a few folks asked me to update on our sailing progress (or perhaps they were just being polite and encouraging... ) but anyhay, we had our first day of lessons today and it was FANTASTIC! It didn't dump rain which of course is a miracle for Vancouver, and we had some light winds most of the day and SUN! Got a smidge of sunburn on my nose even. Lots of practice docking and boat handling and the basics of sail trim, all the good newbie stuff I expect. Hubby and I both loved it and can't wait for next week.

Re: Fabulous 1st Day Of Sailing Course

Aloha,

Glad you had a great first day. Many great days to follow.

Had a beautiful sail today on my friend's Excalibur 36. Sunny with big fluffy clouds and 10 to 12 knot winds.

kind regards,
