Academics Go Sailing!

Yesterday, A and I were spoiled rotten! We got taken out on a family friend’s sailboat for a cruise around English Bay. While out, both A and I got a chance at the helm, raised and lowered sails, tacked, ran, and generally had a good time on the water. Here are some pictures from our adventure!
