I was sailing yesterday with the Royal Cape Yacht Club.
My efforts to understand and to remember all this sailing vocabulary were not very successful but I know now that board is left and starboard is right. Why can I remember this in English while I always failed to memorize it in German?
However, I was more busy with watching the see and the sun and not getting wet when the yacht was leaning extremely to one side.
I was seriously thinking about how to react if I fall in the water until I remembered my life guard lessons. Shoes of and than swimming with clothes. It’s not that difficult. Only problem: the water on that side of Cape Town is freezing cold.
Unfortunately, you won’t see any photos before my return to good old Europe and the yacht I sailed on has no name. hmpf.
Thanks to the great crew: Tom, Glen, Cameron, and Christine. I was not a great help and the best I could do was to stay out of the way. What I did satisfyingly, at least according to my knowledge. 😉
It was great!
