Dillon Sails on the Ted Ashby


It was a windy day, a cold and gale force wind was biting my warm face on the Ted Ashby. When we were on the sail boat we went towards the Harbour bridge with the wind blowing against our clothes. The wind moved the boom left to right. The icy wind was blowing heavily and strongly.
Pulling and heaving with all my might the sails were slowly going up. I struggled as I heaved, pulling the sheet fast with the wind blowing on the sails. I was wondering if the sailors thought it was a hard job, because for me it was.

  1. Hi Dillon,

    My name is Mitch and I'm in and EDM 310 class in the USA. I really enjoyed your description. I love to sail on the bay near my house. I've never been on a boat that big though! I hope you enjoy writing because you are definitely talented.
