Luckily I have a kind and generous brother, and luckily he has a sailboat, as well as lots of other fun things to do at his house in Maryland. Five of our young men and I traveled to his place for a couple of days this week to coincide with Spring Break.
They took full advantage of the opportunity. They fell off kayaks.
They fell off the climbing wall in my brother's barn (don't worry, they were harnessed and belayed).
They fell asleep on the sailboat.
They did fall-away shots playing midnight basketball (all right, all right, enough falling).
and some more intently, as he refused to be distracted by the ones that had climbed in the dinghy being towed behind.
The dinghy motor problems were solved, and the young men took advantage of the quiet cove anchorage for the night, and practiced their skills in the Zodiac. They need more practice. Trust me.
