Last night Price and I went sailing for the first time. One of my coworker’s sent around an email in the morning asking if people would want to go sailing that night. I jumped at the opportunity since we had never been sailing before. In fact, one of our goals was to going sailing on the Charles this summer. When I’ll meet that and raise you sailing in Boston Harbor. Goal set, and clearly surpassed.
So we met Larry at the launch to take us to the sail boats on the moorings for boats in the Boston Harbor Sailing Club. He explained the parts of the 27-foot boat. Like the keel- which will keep you from capsizing since it displaces around 2,000lbs. Loving that.
Price took one and side and I took another to handle the jib sail while Larry took the back to go from side to side as we tacked from side to side. We crisscrossed the harbor as we watched a group of sail boats race. It was unbeliebale how fast they were going and how far over they were leaning. It was such a beautiful night.
The ride was amazing since it was pretty windy. So windy that when my side was closer to the water a wave came across the bow and got me soaked. I thought it was the funniest thing ever. So I loved it even more when Price got his turn and got wet. Mauhahaha!
Thanks again, Larry!
