26 was probably one of the best birthdays I had in years! It was a perfect day, sunny with hardly a cloud in the sky and a steady breeze. I had never been on a sailboat before, and I was very much looking forward to our three hour tour. I obviously know nothing about sailing, but I definitely did not know the extent to which the boat teeters to one side when the wind really picks up. One would thing that sailing would be peaceful and relaxing with no powerful engines to disturb the tranquility of you and the water, but not with me on board. Every time the boat would dramatically lean to one side, I would make all sorts of shrieks and squeals. Who knew that sailing could be added to the list of NZ adrenaline activities? Captain Phil with Sounds by Sail was incredibly trusting to let Mom and I both steer, and showed us a fabulous day on the water. Our pictures are absolutely hysterical, and I can’t wait to share them all as soon as I can get them uploaded.
