Re: Near disasterous first sail

RE: the wife;

Sailing reminds me a LOT of downhill snow skiing.

Assuming that you have been on skiis; remember the first time that you got off the lift. It probably wasn't pretty either. If you got to the bottom, and didn't take a ski-patrol sled, then it was a success. You were probably pretty tired/bruised too. In a short time, assuming that you stick with it, it becomes fun. Shortly after that it becomes exhilarating.
