one more race, and the Nationals are over. No better way than to dive into the deep end like I did. I learned quickly and destroyed the
minimum number of sails (one jib and two spinnakers), and still kept the skipper happy with my performance somehow. I have learned techniques and skills and although still feeling a little keel-hauled I will get over it.
Health is remarkably good, must be all the salt water/air (both of which I consumed copiously) and the exercise that went with it! Can highly recommend sailing to people with CF, but maybe refrain from starting in a national titles!
