So that is what we did yesterday.
I heard from Eric this morning. Here is what he did yesterday, which is actually today--if that makes any sense.
"I met a guy from work who took me on a yacht race today in Sydney Harbor. I mean, I’ve been sailing about 2 times in my life and today I’m literally on 20’ swells hoping that this thing does not tip over. The 6man Aussie crew I was with did not look worried so I tried to play it cool, too. We won the race (almost 3 hours) and it was quite a thrill. These guys just do not stop (they must not have kids!)"
