Finally - Sailing!!!

After a little more than 4 months of preparation, we finally had our first day of sailing in the Catalina 25. It was cloudy and cool on the water but a very gentle 10-12 mph breeze made it an easy first day.

Even with light winds, there were times when we had satisfying speed and a 15-20 degree heel.

My strategy for sea sickness - stay topside and stay busy. No problems today.

When I was home in September I saw your boat in your driveway. I laughed because it almost stuck out all the way to the street!

I'm glad that you got out finally! The beginning of many adventures I am sure...
