I dreamed I was at a Laser sailing clinic in Puerto Rico.
(In real life I have been to Puerto Rico several times, but never to a Laser sailing clinic there.)
After we sailed for a while we would stop and haul out our boats on to a floating dock and then drag them inside some classroom on the dock where the coach would give us some more instruction.
Then we would go sailing again.
One time after we had hauled all our Lasers inside I couldn't remember whether I had pulled mine out of the water or not.
I looked for my Laser. It wasn't in the classroom. I couldn't see it out on the sea.
After a while the instructor joined me in looking for my Laser and we got in the coach boat and went searching for it.
We never did find it.
But all the time I had a batten from my sail in my hand. The short batten.
What does it all mean?
