You're back onto the Optimist sidelines these days?
The kids are 10, 12, and 15, and I'm trying to help them out if I can, but I still have a lot of travel and stuff with the Cup team. I love to get to the events with them, get them set up, push them off the beach, and stand there with the rest of the Opti parents. I just try to give a hand where they need it, but they have coaches and they need to go out and learn on their own. The one thing I can do when they're frustrated with something they're not familiar with, or not comfortable with, I can cut the corner for them by offering suggestions. They need to make their own mistakes; once you've made it, it's easier to see it coming along next time.
