It was sunny and breezy all day... just perfect for sailing. We learned how to tie knots in the morning - from the simple figure of eight knot to the bowline, reef knot and some hitches. After lunch, we were taught the proper way to rig the toppers before launching them out to sea.
... and further away into the open sea, where the water was quite choppy. After two hours out in the sea, I became sea-sick and returned to the shore while the rest carried on for another couple of hours.
After our lesson, we went for a drink at the bar on the second level which offers a lovely view of the marina and the sea.
we went on our boat tooooo. aint life grand?
i love the palm trees. i wanna live somewhere tropical someday.
happy sunday..errr uh.. monday! whatever day. :))
Oh yesterday I was just thinking, if I were to sail, I would probably throw up enough food to feed the entire population of sharks! :") You lasted a few hours friend, you are brave :)
looks like a lot of fun! (^o^)
Oh yah, Soul! You have a boat. you can got sailing everyday! :-)
MH - you know what? I felt terrible yesterday, I stood at the jetty and threw up my lunch! I hate that feeling. Today when I brought mum to the hospital, my mum (who has a history of dizziness) told the doc she's feeling more dizzy than ever. The doc said motion sickness runs in the family. Now I know why I get car sick, sea sick, and all kinds of motion sickness. Arghh, I am going to retire from sailing.
Seagrape - it always look frun from the photos. Well, I enjoyed the classroom theory lessons the most. And the sunshine :-)
But not the sea sickness. Yucky!
What a cool sports. I love the sea too, but hardly got chance to do all this stuff now. Nice pictures of you :)

Oh Janice, you can do it, together with your boys when they're older.

Lucky you JY, it's a blessing of course! You don't want to be sick I tell ya!
