going on 1st trip
I joined Philadelphia Sailing Club and the 1st trip is this weekend - a Beginners Skills weekend. It's sailing on Saturday, sleeping on the boat Sat nite, then sailing back on Sunday. Now there will be 6 of us on something like a 34 or 36 footer - total strangers. It seems as if everyone is goping down to sleep on the boat on Friday.
Now I don't see the purpose of sleeping on a cramped boat for no reason - for Saturday it's obvious - you've been sailing all day and you out to sea along the coast somewhere. But why Friday night? I'd rather get a good night sleep at home and then drive to the marina early Saturday morning.
What would you folks do if in the same situation?
