As we sail to each marker on the course there will be wind changes, tidal movements and excitement as we race to time or another vessel.
I went out yesterday on the Lotus in the afternoon and what a fantastic experience. Although we were schedued to go out on the America's Cup boats the wind prevented us from using these.
I have frequently sailed before and by far this was one of the most fun and professional experience I have had. The crew was very interactive and knowledgeable. They were encouraging for the group to get involved and took attention to encourage even the shy to participate.
With the wind and rain it could have been a trying experience but it was marvelous and I learned a lot about the America's cup races. Overall I would say: Hip Hip Hurrah for a fantastic experience that I would encourage all to enjoy!!
