Yes, you read that right. For my next trick I am learning to sail. I have access to free lessons and a free boat, so I figured, why not? I also have a friend who needs a sailing buddy. Score!

I learned to tie this knot!

Tonight’s class was dockside. I had a brief moment of concern when I first got on the floating dock, then I was rock solid. I could tell that looking up at the mast was going to be a problem, so I glanced part way up a few times. That made me nauseous. I guess my sailing buddy will have to untangle the ropes up there, and maybe I’ll be able to tell how the sail is by the feel of the rope.

Wish me luck, and stay tuned for updates!
