Yes it's the age old question; where does the urge for sailing originate?
It's the call of the sea, the adventure, the syncronicity with nature and the flow of the sea.
In my case, I sometimes think that I could have been a sailing ship's captain in a previous life. I can remember from an early age being mesmerized by the swashbucklers in movies and reading books like Horatio Hornblower.
There is nothing like it, sailing with the sound of the sea and nature.
