20110122SailingLessons-010One more class over and done with!  ASA101 and 103 behind us, only 104 is left and we’re ready for bareboat charters!  We’ve also decided that we’re going to continue our sailing education with the ASA 105 (coastal navigation), 106 (advanced coastal cruising) and 114 (catamaran), and shortly afterwards we’ll pursue both of us getting our USCG Captain’s Licenses. 

Another day of heavy winds, we ran under a reefed main that was barely up, and a reefed jib.  The furling sails sure make reefing a joy, and quick and simple.  Points of sail, docking, and man-overboard drills are even more fun with lots of wind Smile  We’re looking forward to the 104 class in mid-February!

  1. With our ASA 101 class I mentioned spending the day with Tim, Jim, and Jim H. (from New Hampshire, by the way).

    Incredibly, I took the ASA 103 class with Tim, Jim, Jim H. and a NEW Jim (from New Hampshire, by the way!). What are the odds of that, I wonder?!

    For clarity, Captain Tim resorted to Jim1, Jim2 and Jim3. Not wanting me to feel left out, I became Kim for the day…sometimes Kim1. 🙂 It all added to the levity of an already enjoyable weekend!
