Yes, I have been sailing too!

A week or so back, the local sailing club, held a race day out in the bay here in La Paz.

We were supposed to be heading out to the islands for a weeks break from the city and so I could get my diving fix in, but I managed to convince the boss to delay a few days so I could crew on one of the boats and get a day of sailing in for a change!

Seeing as Sea Raven isn’t quite ready to try and race, I threw my name out there as crew, and managed to get on another cat, Sun Baby, with Larry and Beth.

Now Larry is a racer, and while our friends on Kiapa (the catamaran I mentioned a few posts back as being my dream boat!) were likely to take the line, we figured we had a good chance on corrected time.

And we were right!  Larry timed a near perfect start, and after an impressive up hill leg, 8kts into the wind, not normally a cats strong point, we crossed the line behind Kiapa and claimed the overall win!

Beth took some great photos, and I thought it would be easier to just link in her blog for you to check them out…
