Man Overboard!

OK, back from today’s sailing lesson. Windy out there in Northport Bay,

windy. Whacked on head by boom: 3 times. Capsized: twice. I am getting

real familiar with the underside of a Club 420.

Lots of good stuff from readers about the “Total Immersion” technique of

swimming instruction. Opinions are all over the place though: It’s ideal

for beginners / It’s really only to polish up experienced swimmers’

technique. It gets anyone swimming effortlessly / You’ll never amount to

anything as a swimmer if you’re not really, really fit. It’s the bee’s

knees / It’s a crock. One kind reader has a video instruction course he’s

going to send me, though, so I shall check that out & report back.

Andrew: Your comment reminds me of W.C. Fields’ response when someone

offered him a glass of water: “Water? That’s what fish copulate in, isn’t

it?”
