rescue

Did not pass a doublehanded skipper test yesterday.
During the capsize recovery, one of the hulls filled with a lot of water and we had to call for a rescue. But my sailing up until the capsize was about the most flawless sailing I have ever done.

My arms are also still noodly from yesterday.

Not passing a skipper test is pretty common (esp. first attempt), so I am not that bothered. Truth be told, I learned more in three hours ofheavy weather sailing than I have in months and months, and I am pretty confident I can pass the next time I take the test, which will hopefully be sometime before the windy weather stops entirely.

Loftbed construction going pretty well. Might finish up today, if not today then sometime this week most likely.
