SAILING WAS SOO GOOD…then he went overboard
Captains Log: Vava’u, Tonga January 2021
Today we raised the sails, turned off the motors, and used the wind to move our boat for the first time in one year and four months.
There was rain, wind, no wind, and even a little drama.
It was glorious!
We’re rusty and feel like a couple of stumbling newbies fresh out of the pond. It’s humbling and the gritty reality of being out of practice.
It would be easier to edit out all our mistakes and not open ourselves up to even more criticism than we already experience. Because in the world of social media, opinions flow harder and faster than any oceanic tide.
But, being the masochists that we are, we like to leave in our “learning moments”. Also because we’re human. We struggle, make mistakes, and generally muck things up as humans do.
With that said, if you want to go sailing with a couple of amateurs for the first time in over a year, please come aboard!
We had fun and we used the force of the wind to move our home. For us, it’s a damned good day. In the world of sailing, it’s whatever the opposite of the Vendée Globe or America’s Cup is.
We’ll get back in shape and until then, we’ll keep laughing at ourselves.
