Today, instead of sailing Lasers after school, I spent my afternoon helping my dad prepare our big boat for the approaching storm Isaac. The news forecast has the storm tracking towards us and we decided it would be a good idea to pull the boat out of the water for its safety. We worked on taking down and flaking the two furled jibs and the mainsail, taking apart the canvas cockpit covers, and tying down any loose items. I had no idea sails could be so heavy!! The boat is being pulled out of the water tomorrow.
