Sailing yesterday presented a mixed bag of emotions for me, running the gamut from happiness to fear with a brief stop over at embarrassment on the way. It was great to be out on the water with some delightful passengers as always but things got a little scary when I started to get up some speed and inadvertently took on water as the boat began to heel. It wouldn't matter so much if I was sailing alone, but my passenger ended up soaked through! Prior to that, I had collided with one of the catamarans moored nearby. Saffron very graciously assured me she was alright and accepted by numerous apologies and a lolly pop from my sailing stash of lollies. I just hope that I haven't scared her off sailing for life!
Yesterday was the first day of the new sailing season for me. Joy! Every Thursday I will be volunteering at my local Sailability club taking kids out in the boat with me, one at a time, to share the freedom and wonder that is sailing. I had three delightful passengers yesterday who entertained me so well I felt as though I was the one being treated to a special day. As a bonus, I managed to avoid crashing into anything (I am still very much a learner!). We didn't see the dolphins, but I still enjoyed myself immensely and hope that the kids did too. As always, I am so very grateful to all the wonderful Sailability volunteers who make this experience possible for me and so many others.
