The overnight race to Solomon's was kind of intense for me, especially because I'm not used to super long races, but it was worth it just to see a beautiful sunrise. I haven't been up this early in AGES. We finished just as the sun was coming up....
I'm such a newbie and have a lot to learn, but the boat that I was on was so amazing and understanding. I learned a lot! Most of my duties consisted of staying out of the way to be honest.
Being on the water is absolutely one of my favorite things ever. Now that I've spend a few days closer to nature, I'm a lot more motivated to take advantage of the outdoors and also keep myself in better shape.
I had such a great time, it was truly a long weekend to remember, and I feel so lucky. Even when I was cranky and tired in the middle of the night, I would say to myself, not everyone gets to do this. Nothing of importance fashion-wise came out of this weekend. On the boat my uniform consisted of tank top, shorts, boat shoes, gloves (I have a pretty sweet [not] glove tan line), and sunglasses. I do need some sportier ones, my old Chanel sunnies gave me the worst raccoon eyes imaginable. I did wear some cute dresses to the parties, but paired them with flipflops. Sailing is pretty casual, and I like it that way!
I wish I had more action shots but it's hard to take photos while racing! And my camera zoom is definitely not good enough. The boat I sailed on, "Molto Bene" came in 4th in our class. Not too shabby I think, out of 10 boats.
