Met up with Bill again today for the check out test at 10A.
They're very responsive and great for learning on because they're also not very forgiving... if you make a mistake, you'll know immediately.
The test, with you acting as skipper to your instructor, consisted of prepping and rigging the sailboat, planning your departure, sailing out of the basin, performing controlled gybes, performing tacks, points of sail, maintaining sail trim, hoving to, sailing back into the basin, docking and derigging the sailboat, and a man overboard recovery.
And I'm happy to say that after this 3rd try, Bill said that I've passed! Thank you so much for your patience with this greenest of sailors.
Now onto the hard part: continuing to learn more and gaining more experience.
