Level 2 Training – Take 2

Looking forward to my second week of Level 2 training, starting on 22 June. This was recommended as beneficial for me by my skipper Juan after my first experience of it in March. Found out today that I will have a different skipper this time, on Qingdao.

Me on Level 2 Training in March

Will fewer layers be needed?

Hope it turns out to be a bit warmer than it was then!

Must remember to keep my centre of balance low, get some more seasickness tablets and wet wipes, find my voice (the loud one!) and revise the notes I made about how the sailing evolutions are carried out. These include such tasks as:

  • tacking,
  • gybing,
  • a racing headsail change,
  • hoisting the spinnaker,
  • poling out the headsail,
  • not to mention the Man Overboard DRILL.
