Well, folks, I can sail. Yes I can.
I raised my own mainsail and my own working jib and, as forecast, headed out for my very first sail on my own sailboat last Tuesday (June 16).
It was a defining moment in my life.
Granted, I did have a consummate sailor friend on board who ensured my success by being there with good advice. But it was I, I Captain, who sailed the vessel.
