Re: Video of my son and I sailing today...

Another year or two, he needs an opti! Please continue what you are doing. It's about when I started. I'd give my left arm to be able to take dad sailing with me today. He's still with us (thank God), but unable to get on a boat for any amount of time now.

You started to teach your son that sail is a skill he can spend a lifetime to perfect, but always enjoy. Great video!

Re: Video of my son and I sailing today...

That"s awesome James.
This is something my father and I never did, it is also something my daughter and I have yet to do.
Life can throw you curve balls that just never seem to make it into the mit.
It is nice to see someone catch one of those moments in life.
