Our Homeschool Sail Club meets Fridays at the Key West Sail Club on Garrison Bight.
First off, we start with a bit of chalk talk, today we discussed starts.
It was a tad windy (20+ knots) so only a couple of the older kids went out in Optimas.
Marianna singlehanded for the very first time.
Will, showing her a few pointers.
I could use a few pointers myself on catching the photos though - these little boats are speedy! Between finding them in the telephoto and thinking about the sun's glare on the water washing out the faces, avoiding the power lines in Garrison Bight (not the most attractive of backgrounds) and getting their heads on the proper side of the sail for a good photo...phew! Lots to think about!
For both the photographer and the sailors, I believe!
