Sailing gives me a lot of the same things I get from bikes.
I get less broken body parts, also, I had to adjust from 70 mph though unknown open desert to 5kts over open waters and I had to come to terms with the reality that no matter how hard I tried, I could never preloaded a sailboat enough and jump a swell, however, on occasions, I still stick my foot out when I port or starboard tack
1955 Blanchard 51 Custom ( I got a woody )
