First Lessons

We took our first lessons - ASA 101 - today and will finish tomorrow in Galveston Bay. We were supposed to take these 2 months ago - but IKE intervened. We spend 3 hours in the classroom and 4 hours on the Bay this afternoon. It was wonderful out in the Bay - nice breeze in a nice Hunter 31. We struggled w/ getting back into the dock as one of the students dropped his line and the back of the boat swung over - fortunately no boat in the next slip! The experience out in the bay was fantastic however - I almost can't describe the incredible feeling at the helm or just riding along in the cockpit - it was in short incredible! I know we've made the right decision about going for it - selling up and sailing off in 5 years and have made our next big step today!!
