Re: Does a first sail ever go as planned?

Great story! Thanks for writing it up.

In our case on our new boat (to us), the first sail was PERFECT. No issues. We even sailed it better than we ever expected. Great day.

Unfortunately, sail #2 was the opposite, total cluster getting out of the marina, grounded for our first time, looked foolish right in front of the sailing club. Our lesson was to not get too proud of ourselves or the spanking is just around the corner.
