here’s always something new to learn about sailing, and this weekend, we practice the MOB (man over board) situation. Supposed a crew member accidentally falls out of the boat, and we need to come back and rescue him / her under sail as soon as possible. Everyone takes turn taking the skipper role and rehearsing the MOB procedures.
But actually, most fun comes with the smallest type of boat, the Optimist. I had a very good time learning some of my crash courses with it, a tiny, but responsive boat, which gives you the right feeling about how to handle a boat in different wind and water situations.
Do it the hard way is the motto I firmly believe to be ultimately true and beneficial! 🙂
