A Family of Seven Sailing the World. Share the adventure that is our life!
Tuesday, March 30, 2010
The kids went out for a little sail yesterday on our little hard dingy Shadow. If you don't remember the story of Shadow you can look back in the Sailblogs archives for Oriental. We rescued this little Dyer Dow from a pile of decomposing dingys in a shed and last year aquired a whole sailing rig from a Perrywinkle which we bought from some cruisers here. The Perrywinkle was a little too small for our family so we refitted the rig for Shadow.
It's great to watch the kids tacking and jibing their way through all the boats and the experience makes better sailors out of all of us.
