Sailing Lesson Day 2, Cormorant and Another Rescue

1   Well, we did it! We are again exhausted after a challenging day of learning to sail with quite strong winds and stronger gusts but very happy that we now have our Royal Yachting Association Level 1 Certificates. We completed the syllabus at the Falmouth School of Sailing with our very understanding and excellent teacher (who also fed us Jelly babies! Those who are regular readers will know how I love my Jelly babies!) and we are now ready to tackle Level 2.

2  While practising tacking out in the bay, we saw a small boat suddenly lose its mast and so we went to the rescue again. To our surprise, one of the pair was one of the young women we rescued yesterday! She was very pleased to see us again.
