Today I finally booked some sailing lessons at the Irish National Sailing Club in Dún Laoghaire! I will have two lessons - one on 13th September, and the second on 15th September. The course is an "Introduction to Sailing – Beginner Dinghy". The dinghy used is a small 9' Laser Pico - I'm already nervous!
I have practically no sailing experience (other than being a passenger). I once took a lesson in 1994 when on holiday in Club Med in Ibiza, but I did not get on well - my instructor seemed to think I should be able to sail after about five minutes of his instruction! He had to sail the boat back into shore.
So - all going well I will no longer be a total land-lubber. I'll be sure to blog my experiences.
