To Bob's credit, Kate really put him through the wringer, and he came through (mostly) all smiles. Kate said she did this because she wanted him to catch up to me. Good luck with that tall order, dude! I've had three lessons.
Last night was my first time handling the sheets, and I thought I was going to get to show off for Bob and impress Kate, but with that "catching up" plan, Bob was put on the sheets, too. I have to say, it was easier than I thought it would be, though I wish I'd had gloves. Kate said there was a spare pair in the boathouse, so I think I'll grab those before we head out tonight.
