' Well, after the first lovely day's sail, Uncle started to teach us in earnest. For three days he had us hoisting and lowering the sails, getting under way, and coming back to our moorings. Sometimes he'd go away in the dinghy and watch us doing it alone. We made lots of mistakes at first, and nearly had some collisions; but after a while it suddenly became quite easy, and we felt it was time to be going further afield.' (Mary Green)
