2016 Session Starting August 1 – Day 2

Hi All,

So the second day was even better than the first, if that was possible.  The sailors got out of the harbor and into the bay today for the first time and saw some fresh breeze and a bit of boat wake waves.  The instructors coached them through and some very confident sailors returned to port.

I estimate about 2.5 hours was spent on the water today, and would have been more if a lull in the breeze had not delayed the morning sail session.   Instead the campers played a hide and seek game of nautical parts/pieces.  Of course there were intermittent “chalk sessions” to reinforce what was learned.  Today an important lesson was,”not to panic in waves”. Of course the ever popular swimming interludes were extremely popular too.

Sailing skill levels have improved dramatically.
