Wednesday evening JD and I had planned to attend the
Beyond Basic Keelboat class at the Waterfront Center,
but we arrived just after the class had set out.
So instead, we decided to rent a boat and take it out ourselves.
It took us about ten minutes to get set up but we remembered it all.
It was a perfect evening, warm with steady wind.
We practiced our maneuvers, learned I'm still hopeless at heaving to,
and sailing around "the bathtub" as they call it.
We had such a lovely time.
We hope to get out a couple more times this week(end)
since we have just booked our anniversary trip in Newport
and would absolutely love to get out on the water while visiting.
