...I think I’ve missed the beginning of their current training programme but I’m going to ring them to talk about options for family membership. I was very excited to see they have training boats that members can take out to practice in!
I remember seeing something last year about free family taster sailing days – I might have a google now and see if there is anything available this summer. 1 week ago
Going out with my primary instructor for the fourth time, a two hour sail with one other person.
Perhaps after this sail, I will be ready for certification? 1 week ago
I have almost manned a boat on my own. I’ve learned a lot of skills, and hope to practice more next week. I am aiming for keelboat certification in the next couple of weeks, before I leave Miami. Since I will be in Los Angeles this summer, it might be nice to go out on the Pacific then. In order to do this, I will have to have my certification, I am thinking…something that says I have achieved a basic level of skill.
A few more practice runs with a group and I think I will be ready to test in mid-May! 4 weeks ago
OMG I am so so so in love with sailing! I learned to tack, jib, sail the points, how to work the jib for optimum speed, steer, and just had a blast!!! Sailing close haul is my favorite, especially when you get a little sideways…WOW! Absolutely exhilarating! I can’t wait until tomorrow to learn some new stuff! This is the best thing I’ve done in ages. I have a new love in life! 2 months ago
I’m signed up for a Basic Keelboard certification course at a local boat club. I purchased my reading material and get paid Thursday to get my money order and head on down Saturday for the weekend-long course. I am so excited! 2 months ago
...but I still really want to have a go at sailing! 4 months ago
