Sailing...

takes me away...

I had my first sailing lesson tonight. No time on the lake yet, mostly terminology and rigging a boat. I sure enjoyed the rigging, I get geeked out by stuff like that. I like anything that makes adjustments, whether it is a button, knob, switch, or line (rope in sailor talk). Even the basic boat we are using had a ton of adjustments available. The challenge now will to be knowing what they are and what they do.

We also got to practice moving about the boat while tacking. Pretty awkward right now, passing the tiller behind you back and all that. I am not the smoothes of people, but I'll get the hang of it eventually. they assure us hta it'll come to you pretty quick once on the water.

I am all excited for lesson two on Thursday!

Soon I will be free. (bonus Christopher Cross not to be confused with Kriss version)
