Every day, while the warm fall greets us with steady winds and nice seas, Fred and his best friend have been having sailing classes with me on my boat.
I pick them after school, and I take them sailing, better....they take ME sailing..
They can now both tack and completely manouver the boat on their own, they can beat, tack, DDW etc. I do very very little towards steering or correcting them.
I am very happy because they can now drive the whole thing. Fred drives, his best friend handles main and genoa.
For 10 year olds is pretty impressive to see them handle a boat like mine on their own.
I have many videos but my net connection is very slow.
Here a few photos, while I can't upload the movies.
By the way..check what's in my marina!!! I'll get more photos soon.
