Well the time has come to let the cat out of the bag. We have a acquired a new toy for the kids. Since our friends on Fille De Joi have sold their boat and swallowed the hook, we decided to buy their Optimist sailing dinghy. We thought it would be a great way to remember some great friends.
Today Quincy got invited to a “Dinghy Regatta”. Here are some pictures of him being schooled by the more experienced kids.
No they have not crashed. They are racing and try to keep things tight.
Executing a tack.
Start of the next race. They begin on a downwind run, then circle around the boats and have to beat their way back, avoiding the boats.
