Sailing the Seven Seas... Or an Island

Do you know how to sail?? It is actually a great experience, and how do I know? I know because I had my first Sailing lesson yesterday, at the Hong Kong Yacht Club.

It was an After School Activity, and first they explained the boat. We had our first cap-size drill, where you have to fall in the water on purpose. Tiring, sinking a boat. When we got on again, we had to move the Rudder a lot of the time, and you have to duck a lot. The rudder is the thing you move at the back.The sail is very close to your head, so if you bang it it hurts(I know) . I actually thought that is was an adventurous experience, and even useful when your older because you know how to sail a boat. The place we went to was Middle Island, a tiny little island just off Hong Kong, even smaller than Lantau Or Cheung Chau(the other main islands). If you went to the ramp, you could see schools and schools of tiny fish if you stared really hard at it. If you can see the boat in the picture above, our boat was like that but simpler and for beginners. I recommend sailing if you ever get the chance to do it then it is great fun, even if it does mean being hit in the head by a sail.
