Good luck with sailing with your grandson!
I have to admit, it kind of freaks me out when people my age (I'm 44) have grandchildren. My best friend from 10th grade is a great-grandmother!
My teenage nephew wants to sail our boat on Saturday to the anchorage I chose. He took the auxiliary sail class a few years ago but has almost no experience at the helm. I'm giving him the paper chart, tools, etc and everything he needs to plan the trip in advance to reinforce that there is more to boating than jumping behind the wheel and taking off. I'll put his course in the netbook and see if we can sail it.
His younger sister, who also took the course, is in charge of weather monitoring and figuring out the tides. She already told me that sailing is too much work and why can't she just pay one of her friends to do it. I should make her scrub the boat.
It's supposed to be in the 90s on the Bay and I suspect there will be almost no wind.
Should be interesting.
