// Today was so awesome. We made such good progress that when we were coming back into the inlet the instructor decided to let us bring the boat all the way into the dock under sail, no power.
We were running with the sails wing and wing. Probably jibed seven or eight times. We had a three man crew so I was manning the mainsail and each time we had an accidental jibe I had to bring the main over. It was super cool but hard work. That’s the most difficult point of sail so It’s pretty neat that the instructor actually let us do it.
Plus the weather was really great today which meant that tons of powerboats were out and each time they passed us making a wake it spilled the wind out of our sails, which added to the difficulty but was really fun. I think a few of the powerboaters must have had sailing experience because they were yelling to us and whistling, telling us we were doing great. They knew what a hard point of sail we were coming in on and how difficult it is to bring a 30 foot sailboat in to port fully under sail power. We all work so well together as a crew and I really hope we can all go out together some other time just to practice so we don’t lose everything we’ve learned. I’m…so in love with sailing now.
