Day 6: A Day of Sailing and Watersports

Posted Friday, July 22nd, 2011 at 10:51 am

 

Zenon: This morning we all woke up to a tasty breakfast of English pancakes made by Jac. As soon as we finished eating Alli guided us smoothly off docks. We got out into the channel, raised our sails and Max taught the crew about sail trim and using the telltales. After a nice long upwind sail with both sails out we furled our jib and dropped our main to head into the North Sound. We picked up a ball and hurried ashore to enjoy some small boat sailing, tubing, shops and beach chill time. Alli and Devin cooked up some tasty baked ziti for dinner. After a big cleanup we had a nice long boat meeting with Tal and went to bed.

Da Vinci: The crew was thrilled to wake up to pancakes this morning prepared by Myles. It was straight off the dock in order to get to The Bitter End in time for a full day of activities. Nick P. led us off the dock perfectly and then it was time to raise the sails for a close hauled course to the North Sound. Nick W. was on the helm for quite a while having a blast and learning about sail trim.

Once Nick P. grabbed the mooring ball,  it was time to head ashore for a day full of tubing, wakeboarding, small boat sailing and more! Kyle had a great time taking out the Laser and Hobie Cat. He even took some of the rest of the Tango crew out with him and showed them the ropes. Besides hanging out at the beach and going shopping everyone had the chance to do watersports. Myles, Hass, Austin and Matthew couldn’t stop talking about tubing: they were flying off the wake. Nicholas P. got up on the water-skis like a natural. Nick finished off his day as skipper with a fabulous baked ziti enjoyed by all. Successful day if ever I saw one!!
