That right there is what it's all about as far as I'm concerned. You're a new sailor and you got that rush. Now go back and look at Bubb's 9 knot sail and how excited he was about it. Without doubt, he's a salt - and he still gets that BFS rush.

That feeling never, ever gets old. That's sailing.

Definitely BFS dude. Congrats.
