The First Sail Races

The entire crew and myself started the day with a crisp salty breeze for our faces while filling on a wholesome oatmeal breakfast. Soon after I attended a morning meeting to discuss our sailing positions for the day’s race. Luckily we received the second starting position. I was keen to appoint jobs on the boat for the race- I placed William on the helm while Seth and Collin were on the winches. After the first race, which we came sixth in, we all got lunch at West End. The most thrilling part of the day was when the helm suddenly broke during the second race; even though it was unexpected the crew was able to work together and now we all look back at it laughing!
