Today, I sail for the first time

Today is Tuesday, 19 May, 2015. It is 4:40am and I am wide awake when I should be fast asleep.

I am going sailing today, for the first time ever!

Sure, I've been on boats before, small to largish, and loved it, but never a sailboat.

It's just a day sail with the East Anglia Sea School, so nothing too Earth shattering. Or so you'd think.

We're sailing out of the River Orwen, between Felixstowe and Ipswich. the forecast today includes clouds, light rain and heavy rain - so, typical English weather. It might get up to 13 degrees C, but will only feel like 9, and I bet, out on the water, that will be more like 4.

Note to self, dress warm.

Also, time to go back to sleep, the day will come when it comes.
