Knowing the ropes

DSCN7788That last week of training (Level 4) – the dress rehearsal before the show – when I finally got to sail with both my skipper and some of the crew. Exciting, edgy, digging around in the bottom of my memory to get the knots and techniques right. Bit light on winds at the start of the week so some excellent time for contemplation and some on-board CX workouts … but in that just right ‘Goldie Locks’ window by the end for an ace spinnaker drop/gybe manoeuvre round that west cardinal and back to Gosport that totally jelled us as a crew. This adventure is going to be fun!
