Re: First Solo Dinghy Sail!

So I just finished my 3rd solo sail...and it was beautiful! For the first time, I didn't use my trolling motor other than to get in and out of the marina. That, to me, was a big deal. I spent an hour and a half just tacking back and forth. Before I returned to the marina, I pulled my mainsail in and just floated out on the water for a spell and enjoyed the sunset. Little by little I'm feeling more and more confident. I should be out on the water on Sunday and Monday as well before I'm off on holiday for two weeks.

Thanks for all the words of encouragement; I'm so glad to be out on the water...
