Opening Day

We have taken part in a number of Opening Days at our club now. They are a bit daunting. We have to sail Dusky Dolphin, with the racing yachts at close quarters, past the VIP boats where dignatories return our salutes, all the time keeping our boat safe from collision!

This year was as challenging as usual, but somehow we have become used to working as a team. And we are much better at handling Dusky Dolphin close to other boats. We had to concentrate, but all was fine.

As we sailed out afterwards into Cockburn Sound, I felt as if we had passed something. This wasn’t a challenge any more.

It was time to go further afield…

Tasmania perhaps…
