Back in the Saddle

For the first time since last October we actually went sailing today!! It was a rare day of blue skies and good winds. Temps were in the upper forties and the winds were 12 to 15 knots. It was pretty darn cold sailing upwind (which is what we did most of the day) but the sunshine made it all worthwhile. Since we hadn’t been sailing in so long I was a little worried it would feel like starting over but I guess sailing is like riding a bicycle… There was quite a bit of chop and we took a fair amount of spray over the bow but it was exhilerating, not intimidating ๐Ÿ™‚ We are now anchored in Martin Slough and loving every minute of it ๐Ÿ˜€

Last week we practiced spinning the boat at a dock (in case we ever need to get out oh a tight spot). The video isn’t very exciting but I’ll try to embed it here (I’m typing this only iPhone so I have no idea if it will work).
