Ready about? Ready!

Exciting news! I finally managed to get myself down to the Berkeley Marina and joined the Cal Sailing Club. I paid my $90 (for 3 months) and basically now I can take as many lessons as I want, I just have to show up. Basically, THIS IS AWESOME! For three months I can sail a ton and learn techniques and such from more experienced club members. Everyone at the club is also super nice.

My first lesson today was in a Bahia Laser (see: http://goo.gl/DeylY), which is a smaller boat than I have sailed before (and not a keelboat). At first I was a bit nervous, since it’s been a while since I’ve been sailing, but I remembered a lot of the terminology and technique pretty quickly. There are a number of new things to deal with that are different from what I’m used to, so I’ve got a lot to learn… but its already SO much fun.

The hardest thing will be coming up with enough excuses to take off and go sailing…
