Today was the 2nd private lesson. I was on a huge high from yesterdays outing with KJ on Cuajota. This lesson was on a larger Harbor 20 boat that should feel closer to my boat. Well it wasn’t horrible, but it was a rude awakening. A few times we almost capsized. The winds are gusting at about 15 knots and its the strongest wind I have been in. When the wind fills the sails, we heel over, and being a smaller and lighter boat than Cuajota, it will definitely take on water and ultimately flip over putting us in the Newport Beach Harbor. Not something I would alike to do. I was confused when talking about tacking and jibing and turning the boat the wrong direction when doing either. The things I was doing so effortlessly before were now confusing me. I think it was also the fear (first time I have had that on a sailboat) of capsizing that had my mind stuck a little bit. In the end I pulled it together and got some valuable experience out of it. Could have been worse, but it wasn’t the greatest. I began using an app on my iPhone called Motion X GPS. It allows me to track my sailing outings and post regular updates to an email address or Facebook…here is the track of my lesson….
