Optimist yachting

Sailing by Jan Trafford 

Key ideas from her article is...

-if you're 8 yrs old you can sail an optimist yacht/dinghy.
-you can tell which way the wind is coming from by feeling the cold parts of your face and neck.
-when the water is warm, that is the best time to flip the boat.
-the knot stops the sheet from slipping through the block.
-you would think it is very hard to learn how to sail a yacht but it is as easy as riding a bike !!
