first sailing race!

thirsty thursday sailing races happen every week in our harbor. a couple weeks ago i got a call after work from my fellow sailing friend, brian. he invited me to join his old crew for a leisurely race. winners get free drinks at the yacht club bar after the race. well of course we won! apparently this crew and their boat used to do every single race they could for many years. besama a 36′ beneteau. what a beautiful boat. you can tell she has had her glory days. but for someone like me with a 28′ fixer upper, i had a big crush on that boat. i enjoyed racing, i could definitely do more of them. i don’t know if it’d become a big hobby or sport for me, but i can see how participating more often can really help the cruising lifestyle.

this isn’t the exact floor plan but very similar.
