A few more

Hello,

A few more:
  • You get to learn new skills. No matter how many times I go sailing, you always have the opportunity to learn more. It may be something simple like a new knot, more complicated like flying a spinnaker, you are never done. And learning helps to keep the old noodle sharp!
  • That feeling of Self Sufficiency: I may not (and probably won't) sail over the horizon and 'away from it all' but I could
  • That wonderful feeling when you hoist the sails, turn off the engine, feel the boat heel, accelerate and move peacefully through the water.
