Why do you think I have this name on here????

I have been Flying for over 39 yrs for a living for 34yrs.

I have been Sailing for 25 yrs.

I'm about to hang up the Flying and go cruising for the next 10 yrs or so.

Lots of skills are interchangeable between Flying Small Planes and Sailing. And Since I fly float planes have even more things in common.

Weather, reading Wind on the water, A Sail is basically a Wing on end. You Change the sail shape for High life or high speed just like wings are different shapes For Low speed high lift or high speed.
Radio Skills can be carried over, Navigation. And donít forget both are fun. And can kill you if you don't know what you are doing.
Both can have many hours of Boredom with short times of excitement when Weather gets bad or you have system Failures.
