Trip Preparation

Today we have been preparing for the trip. We started with a sail on the keelboat, which was good fun. It is halfway between a Wayfarer and the “Offshore Scout” which I sailed last year on my trip from Sweden to Latvia, the size is good, its controls are almost identical to wayfarers but bigger and with an outboard motor. 149 more words

Very Few People in Camp

All of the campers for session 2A have been picked up today, which has left camp with only a very few cabins. This means that the site seems very quiet. 429 more words

Sailing @ Torch Lake

Today I have spent almost all day teaching sailing.

In the morning I was assessing my cabin for their crew ratings (knots, rigging, theory, sail folding) so hopefully they will be totally able to finish their rating before our sailing trip (they now only need to do their practical assessment). 146 more words

Wide Range of Activites

Camp America: session one

Sorry I’ve been so patchy with the updates.

I don’t think there are any words to adequately describe this experience:

Self-absorbed, bizarre, emotional, busy.

When you’re at camp, nothing outside it seems to exist. 226 more words
