Dear Captain Lucy Newman,
Now that I've caught up on sleep, I wanted to reach out and thank you again for the instruction over this past weekend on ASA Course 106. I was reflecting back on the weekend to review what had made it so enjoyable. It had been a bit of a beat the last several weeks, spending the evenings after work completing the required bookwork for courses 105 and 106. I wanted to list some of the things I enjoyed over the 4 day weekend:
*It was nice to put the books down and spend some actual time offshore
*New ideas found when provisioning with new crew
*Stepping on an unfamiliar boat discovering the things that are new as well as recognizing the systems that are the same
*Problem solving as a team
*Fried fish and free rum!
*Crossing the Start line first
*Strong steady winds
*The sound of the air horn at the finish line
But what I think I've enjoyed the most was the time spent with the sailing/cruising community. As a new club member I hope there are more opportunities for these types of weekends. What's next!!
Cheers and fair winds.
