Sailing Lessons/certified keel boat sailors

14 March 2009 | San Diego CA
Well we finally made it for our first lesson. We arrived and were greeted by cold cloudy weather. Not the tropical kind we hoped for. The weather cleared and the wind picked up to about 12 knot winds and we had a great time. So much to learn, so much room for error. Do we tack, where is the wind? Oh crap, here comes the boom...accidental jibe. Luckily our instructor was forgiving. Thanks Paul. Charlie Smith from Yuma was part of our class. The 3 of us made a great team.
