Actually it was good as fred understood how and what you have to do when stuff happens..keep calm, evaluate situation and fix...
He did pretty good, just the 2 of us and was pretty handy that he knew what to do, kept his heading all the time, asked me what I wanted to do, and what I wanted HIM to do...and he did it...
He "drove" back home, as we sailed with genoa after I secured the boom.
The problem was that the wind was really strong and the sail was flapping a lot...I needed to get it down before more damage, so he kept steering so that the sail wouln't flap..
After we landed...he saw all my friends come over, and he said..."well dad now you can get all the help you need, I'll be down in tha cabin watching cartoons..."!!!! how cool is that???
