Topper sailing

It was windy when we arrived at the Yacht Club... another perfect afternoon for sailing. Afraid that I would get seasick like the last time, I had a light meal in the morning and hoped for the best.

We slapped on our sunblock, rigged the toppers up and launched them into the water. As everyone sailed off into the sea, I climbed on board the powerboat with our instructor. Well, I decided to use C.H's topper later.
Jetting about on the powerboat was alot more fun than sailing. I saw my friends struggling with the sail, stress written all over their faces...well, I was happy I wasn't sailing (yet). For now, I simply sat back and admired the luxurious yachts around me.
After 2 hours on the boat, the water started getting choppy which made me very queasy. We went back to shore for a break. When the guys went back to sea again, I decided to call it a day.

The beautiful White Rabbit.

Oops, my friend's topper capsized!

Trying to get back up.
