Originally I was supposed to start sailing lessons in July, but due to some surprise scheduling changes I’m now going to start my lessons tomorrow.
It’s a good thing I’ve been so studius and have already read the book and practiced all the knots. I’m pretty excited to get out on a boat and actually do some of the things I’ve been reading about.
Two weeks of nightly Monday to Thursday classes should be enough time to cover quite a lot of stuff and get some decent on-the-water experience.
One of the stand-out things that I’ve noticed about being in Ontario is the amazing access to waterways. Ponds, rivers, lakes and canals are everywhere and it’s easy to launch a boat in all of them. I’m hoping that sailing lessons and a membership for the sailing club will help get me going on a hobbie that involves getting out of the house and exploring.
