First Race

We've all been there. The first race in a new boat. Some of us may be too old to remember it well. Some of us may still remember it with embarrassment.

Over at the Laser Forum Skipper Johnson captures the experience of that first race perfectly.

Well, at least I didn't make so many mistakes in MY first race!

My second will be this coming Saturday; rumor has it Larry won't be on his boat, so the boat to beat will be ... Goat Rodeo.

Hmmm... I remember my first time in a boat!

I was 3 years old and my Dad had just built me my first boat. A plywood Sabot.

The thing is though, the first time I was allowed in it was only in the pool! I was on a time trial. From the shallow end to the deep end.

I won!

Can this count as my first race???
