Today at the Lahaina Yacht Club we had a terrific time. We all got to sail individually. When we got in the water, the waves were big and it was high tide. The wind was really strong but the direction of the wind was strange. When we got our boats rigged and ready to sail, we were supposed to sail the course but instead we rode the waves back and forth. That was really fun because we went really fast. After that we sailed the course. Some of us had Bics and some had Sabits. I love the Bics because I have more boat speed and it feels like I am flying. All the Bics raced today and I won first place in both of the races. I was really proud of myself. While sailing around the buoy A, I thought I saw a shark because I saw two fins. One fin was big and one was small. I got really scared because I am terrified of sharks. It turned out it was just a turtle and I felt relieved. The wind died down and I felt like we were sitting ducks. When it was time for lunch we went in and hooked our boats to the buoys, took our daggerboards out, lifted the rudder and unhooked the mainsheet. We had fried chicken and french fries for lunch. It was delicious especially when I dipped the french fries in ranch dressing. After lunch we were able to sail with partners and Summer and I were together. At this point the waves got bigger and the wind much stronger. Summer and I kept capsizing and the waves made it difficult to get back in the boat. Eventually we got back on course after everyone else overlapped us about four times. I didn't care because I was having too much fun. Time flew by fast and it was already time to go. It was a great day and I had so much fun. I cant wait until next week.
