Sail vs. Power
I come from a family of powerboaters. I as a kid I used to look at sailboats and wonder.
You have to try it a few times to make a fair comparison. Find someone who is willing to take you out and show you the ropes. Once won''t be enough as you will want to experience many types of conditions and even better, a couple of different sailboats. If you can go out for a Weeknight race as crew as well as sail a full keeled cruiser you will see different worlds of sailing.
Two years ago I took sailing and navigation classes.
Last year I purchased a 30 foot sailboat (racer/cruiser type). I''m 37 years old and I don''t think I have ever had this much fun.
