We’ve just returned after a long days sailing. We spent the morning moving to a different (better) boat.
We had a load of safety briefings and Lou (the instructor) showed us how to do a few things. Mum steered whilst Lou and Dad operated the sails. We sailed all the way to Cowes (on the Isle of Wight). Continue reading First day sailing!
I’m so excited, there is only one more night and day, and on that day we leave at 6pm.
At least one of us is excited about the next 5 days sailing! By and large the family is more concerned with not quite knowing what to expect. Joe, it has to be said, is very excited.
We’re spending 5 days & nights together in a more confined space than we’ve ever done before – plus we’ll have the instructor with us. We’ll be spending the night aboard in Gosport tomorrow night and then making way probably to Cowes, Lymington, Yarmouth, Hamble and then back to Gosport.
