Learn To Sail Bundaberg

Both Boys had a fun day at “Sailability” a few weeks ago, which was fun but didn’t last very long. It was for only 10 minutes and they didn’t get to “Sail” at all, just sat next to an instructor and got to learn what needs to be done to sail. While I was happy that both Cameron and Kyle got a taste of sailing, I was keen for them to “Learn To Sail” and started to ask questions.

To be told about the “Learn To Sail Bundaberg” group that would be starting its new course soon. I rang up to the club house and took a picture of the poster that advertised the event. It had the organiser name and email address. I contacted them and worked out when the next sailing class was going to start up.

Yet I wasn’t sure how i was going to be able to pay for the event, as we had a sick dog that had to see the vet twice and our savings were used on her. But if you have a “Dream” there is always a way to make it happen, and with assistance to a program that gave us a grant both boys were able to join the amazing people down at Bundaberg Port.

Normally we are very shy people, and it takes us awhile to warm up to someone. Yet every single person we meet this morning went above and beyond being nice to us, they all stopped to say hello, and have a chat. I was even saying to David “Wow every single person is super friendly and nice”.

A guy even came over and shared his “Camera” after seeing I had mine out. I was taking heaps of pics but my lens that zooms in was damaged and I was only able to use my 18-55mm lens which is okay for subjects that are close to me, but for long distance doesn’t cut it. He showed me his lens which can go to 300mm and I was blow away with the quality of the pics seen as how much it can zoom!

Learn To Sail Bundaberg has even won Cameron over! David has yet to join the club – we just joined both boys as single members as we didn’t have the money to join as a “Family” but now we have seen how much fun they both had, we are all keen to Learn to Sail.

David is a boat builder by trade, but hasn’t learnt to Sail. And yet he has had it on his #Bucketlist for so very long, so he is going to have so much fun when he has his turn.

CAMERON HAD A BLAST

After the morning the instructor that Cameron had came up to us, and asked if Cameron had learnt to sail before, because he was doing so good at making sure the boat went where he needed it to go, and was able to safely pass others in the water.

KYLE HAD A GO ALL BY HIMSELF

Sailing in Bundaberg Port

HE GOT STUCK GOING AROUND IN CIRCLES 🙂

Yes Kyle got to have a Sail all by himself. And yes he went around in Circles as he couldn’t work out how to get back to shore – he could sail easily with the wind, but going back against the wind was another story.

One of the sailing guys came over and was speaking with us {as we were waiting for Kyle to be assisted back to shore} and then explained to Kyle how to criss/cross in a pattern to work out how to get back to shore. At first Kyle wasn’t exactly sure what they were saying but when the guy got down on the grass, and drew a pattern explaining how to sail back to where you want to go with the idea of using your arms in a 90 degree pattern Kyle face lit up with that light bulb look of “Oh Yeah Now I Get It” moment.

We are so looking forward to going back next Saturday. We can’t wait to see how their confidence grows, their skill develops and how they can eventually sail all by themselves, and become part of a team.

Learn To Sail Bundaberg – what a fantastic Homeschooling sports for any child. They have a six weeks course run by Brian Bedford. Today was the first of this six weeks group, and they run the course a few times a year.
