Riverside Community Sailing Program

This past week Eric has participated in the Riverside Community Sailing Program, a program to teach youth how to sail. He volunteered as part of the rescue team as he is trained in first aid and CPR because he is a Fire Explore. His first task was to get into the rescue boat with Megan, the lifeguard. I had to chuckle when he told me because Megan is also 16 years old. Eric is not a very social person and he is on a row boat with a 16 year old female. It is almost like being stranded on a desert island.

So who broke the awkward silence first? Eric explained that she introduced herself and asked him his name. I am figuring there was plenty of awkward silence with some conversation mixed in. He did have fun because he woke up, got ready and rode his bike down to the park on his own after the first day. Could it be that he got to sit in a rowboat with Megan? They even went out sailing together.

As for the Riverside Youth Sailing Program and its first sailing classes, from what I heard everything went well. Eric may be back next year as an instructor.
