Five of the eight of us are Coast Guard fellas. They KNOW HOW TO SAIL. Mostly I try to stay out of their way but on a rare occasion they'll let us laymen crank something or stand at the bow with a buoy. Its great to see them work. It's such a quick game, everyone climbing around—pulling on ropes and shouting jargon. Starboard! Main sail!
But more than that, they're all fun. And relaxed. Maybe it's the water. Honestly I wouldn't mind joining this rum-drinking-sunburned-boat-club.
