Learning to back the trailer

I own a trailer sailer - so obviously every time I go for a sail she has to be launched and retrieved.

I found on the web that "Get Lost 4WD Tours" of Ballina offered tuition in backing caravans. I explained that I wasn't taking Little Dragon outback but that I really did need a few hints on how to get her in and out of the water with less angst.

Nicky came with me for the lesson on what turned out to be a bitterly cold afternoon. Thanks Nicky. We headed out to a deserted industrial area in Ballina and he set up a line of witches caps. Nicky learnt how to direct me and I got some good tips. We ended up with Nicky and the tutor freezing cold and me feeling slightly more confident.
