What's that bowline tying technique at 11:55? I watched it a few times and couldn't quite get it. Somehow you have a quick and effortless way to create a bowline.
Mo is a fast learner! (And you are a great teacher!) I wonder if the tiller would be easier for her if it was shorter with a hiking stick or something. Otherwise when sailing with 2 people, it has to be hitting her head and neck. It's one of those "there's got to be a better way" things.
Love the sequence on putting the dinghy in the water and rigging it, and all the details, like how you do a full wrap on cleats before starting figure eights.
Great minds discuss ideas;
Average minds discuss events;
Small minds discuss people.
The best minds discuss sailing (and a little bit of politics). I don't know why. It's a mystery!
