This blog was never intended to be a Boat's Log (B'Log for you landlubbers). I think I would bore myself and my 16-24 daily visitors silly if I posted nonsense like this:
OK, that's actually not boring. I guess I just can't make a sailing day sound boring no matter how short it is. I was very conscious of the First Rule of Sailing and just didn't want to scare a 5 year old off. I am pretty sure the second comment was a brave face borne of having two older brothers and a fearless nature, but a sailboat beating into 10-20 knots of wind with choppy water can be scary your first time out. HK asked me if I would have sailed it singlehanded and yes absolutely, but I've been in 20 foot seas in a gale, RB hasn't.
At the end of the day, I think she had fun, something that can't be said of the 35 footers captain who is probably at his therapist's office trying to recover from the industrial strength stinkeye he received.
