Team Bailey

Today we made optimist yacht each. It was quite hard, but very fun

Guide to Riding a Optimist Yacht

Below you will find a step by step instruction guide to being safe in an optimist yacht. If you follow this guide you will be gliding around, as safe as can be, whilst your companions are struggling and falling off  and just plain drowning. Unless of course they follow this guide as well.

Step 1: Make sure your boat is facing the wind. This is vitally important, to ensure the boom won't swing around and wallop the back of your head.

Step 2: Have you checked the buoyancy cap? What is that you ask? The buoyancy cap is a black circle like thing that protect the boat from filling with water and sinking to the bottom of the lagoon.

Step 3: Don't forget to check the rudder for without it you'd be like a dog chasing his tail.

Step 4: Mast lock is very important double check it’s securely locked in. That’s the rope that holds up the mast. Why don't you check the bow line at the same time.

Step 5: Have you secured your figure eight knots properly? This will ensure that your mainsheet won't go flying in the gail.

Step 6: Now for your own, personal safety. I'm warning you not for the fashion easter. wetsuits are not compulsory but take my advice they can prevent being frozen to an icicle.

Step 7: Lets talk footwear. Old sneakers or water boots are good option. You don't want to be wearing flip flops on the boat, now do we?

Step 8: Lifejacket are a must have if you capsize that might just save your life. Just check it does not slip over your head. One more thing on this subject make sure it has been certified in the last 2-3 years.

Step 9: Last but not least, Have fun!!

He put all the leaders in a bucket and produced three names "Bruno, Flora and Bailey if you want to you three are going to be interviewed by the radio station." We all said yes of course. That should take place on the Labour weekend Monday.
