Just completed my first sailing course - ASA
101, and ended with single
handing a Capri
22 in and out of Santa Barbara Harbor.
OK, it's a start anyway. Tacking up a narrow channel filled with kayaks, paddle boards, motor
boats and cruisers was interesting. Oh yeah, can't forget the race
with the 60 or so 12-footers. Most embarrassing moment: getting my head
stuck in between the lines of the mainsheet on a particularly urgent tack (as in nearly running aground)!
I think the single
handing was maybe (make that probably) the most educational part of it all!
See ya out there someday soon!
