And We Are Sailing/Purjehtimassa!

2purje

Saturday was finally the day!

Sailboat is all rigged up and sailors are ready to go.

Maiden voyage by Captain and Mr D.

There they are, a dot on the horizon..

They sailed back and picked up Mr A, who was the first to try the trapeze. Well done, Mr. A!!

I think he was pretty pleased with himself.

As was the Captain ;-) It has been quite a few years since the last time he sailed, and what a treat to do it with his sons on our 'own' lake!

11purje

Not sure if Mr T had a good time - what do you think?

12purje

Or Mr D?

14purje

Who actually managed to sail all by himself for a good while. Capsized the boat, too! On Sunday - but more on that in another post...

13purje

Here's Mr T and Mr D working together to sail around the lake.

And look who got in, too?! Little Miss LOVED sailing.

Peer pressure: since Little Miss went sailing, this Land Lubber had to, also.
(I only felt queasy for a few hours, afterward.)

Thanks, Captain! I think we have found another fantastic homeschool PE family sport!!

Lauantaina vihdoin purjevene oli valmis, ja saimme veneen vesille. Kuvista näkee kuinka onnistunut päivä meillä oli:) Seuraavassa postauksessa kuvia sunnuntain kokeiluista, mm. kuinka kaadetaan purjevene ja saadaan se ylös taas!
