Sailing, day 1

So, first sailing lessons today (at a marina close to my house, so I even got to sleep in). Basically, everything went perfectly for me: didn't fall in the water; no WTF moments; got in quite a lot of actual sailing around in the afternoon.

A guy I was on the boat with did fall in the water, arguably through my inaction. We were rolling the sail at about 3:30 (class was 10am to 4pm), and the boom started to swing, and if I'd noticed what was about to happen fast enough, I could have grabbed it. Ah, well. I guess he learned my lesson.
