9 May 2009 - family sailing

6 nautical miles
It looked like a gentle sailing day - Bft 2 - so I invited the family that are just joining us at work out for a day sail. There are three kids in the family so took them out in two relatively short trips.

These photos are from the second trip.

It turned out to be a little more lively that Bft 2 - the chart showed Bft 4+ later when I got home. Still it was great fun sailing and a good way to introduce people to the fun of sailing.

If you get cold from the spray, the best thing to do is snuggle up under the deck with some cushions for padding... and sleep?

I gave David, Nicole and Josh a chance at helming... Josh seemed to really get the hang of sailing and enjoyed it.

Have I found a new crew to train this season?
