winched.

well, we survived sailing, round two.

Some key highlights:

  • I did not throw up (this one was pretty important).
  • Brett almost lost the winch handle, but we SAVED it. Thank god for the triangle-method, and crew overboard drills.
  • May is still really freaking cold - yesterday I wore two tanktops, one long sleeved shirt, my cross country ski jacket, a nylon windbreaker AND a lifejacket. And I was still cold. See also: mittens.
  • I think I am a knot-nerd. I can tie them all.
  • People who are out sailing with their fenders down look ridiculous.

Now, to write the exam. So much to memorize!
