After all the ranting and raving about what a wonderful teacher I am and that Camille is starting "to get" sailing I have to admit I've failed with Noah. Even on the most elementary level, he just doesn't understand sailing. Case in point:
What kind of sail trim is that? Is he trying to heave to or something? I asked him and got nothing, no searing tirade on how he was in the middle of weathering the sails or whatever ancient people said when gybing pirate ships. Nothing on how he was heaving to in the face of a calamitous gale. He just liked how the sails look I guess.
Here's a close-up:
What do you think he's trying to accomplish? Why is the Captain staring aft? Especially when the cannon is pointing forward? Where the heck is the wheel? I know the set comes with one. Does anybody have thoughts on what's going on here before I write him off as a helpless landlubber?
