Kari in Klass


Kari in Klass

Kari had not been on a small boat nor sailing before.

She is thinking about a career in the Coast Guard so we got her out for some boat training and sail training.

Took a few practice throws but she got the catch a cleat thing down – she never quite looked comfortable stepping off the boat at the shrouds, just needs a bit more practice probably.  The throw a long dock line was like throwing a life ring that she had trained as.

For some reason she did not connect the “training day” with driving the boat so she was a bit surprised to find herself driving the boat, she had not expected to drive the boat the first trip out.  She did a good job.

There was  sail boat race going on that we got to watch a bit.
