I must start by saying that the thrill and excitement of each time I ask my crew if they are ready to tack grants me such excitement as a kid in a candy store especially to a young new crew not ready for such a flip... sailing is better by means of hands on and survival.i am curious as to why everyone chose owning a sailboat over a powerboat. they both have there ups and downs but what were your main reasons for your decesion?
Any idiot can turn a key and turn left and right, but a true sailor can create his own direction after the "fuel" has run out with even the slightest wind. If your sail fails, grab some string and sew. If your engine fails you'd better hope you're a mechanic with tons of spare parts on board... either way you put it, it's all based on the individual person, I can sail and love too because of my ideals and training to do so. Some may enjoy power to go faster, but skipping forward on the top of the water is not what I enjoy, I love the lean of the wind and the overflow of water spilling over the edges onto my feet that reminds of how every drop of water on my toes is there specifically because I wanted it there!!!
