I am learning solo sailing by doing it. That's why I planned an entire season of sailing in safe waters. To make all the possible mistakes. And learn from them. 🐬 I was dangling out of the boat on the portside, with my lifejacket on and attached to a halyard, a rope used to hoist sails on the mast, pushing with my feet on the side of the boat to get as far out as I could.
