Summer Cruise Day 24

Today we sailed further up South River towards Liberty Marina. Maddies brother was performing that afternoon, so we borrowed a car to go see it. The marina was the easiest way to get back and forth from the boat and car.

Maddie took the helm while I worked the deck to get us going. It's important to make sure that all hands on board are capable of doing all the tasks of keeping the sailboat running. Should something happen to one of the crew members while out at sea, all responsibility will fall on the other crew member.

Maddie pointed out how much smaller the volume of our boat is compared to the powerboats around us. I pointed out to her how that is our entire home!
