An end of the season confession
I desparately miss sailing over the winter. After the boat is pulled from the water and all my gear is safely stowed away in the basement, I feel sad that it will be a long 5 or 6 months until I can sail again. However, I also feel a sense of.....relief. There, I said it. I spend a lot of time and effort over the summer figuring out ways to get on my boat. There is never enough time to do all of the things my family needs to do, and there are inevitably conflicts. Even though sailing itself is remarkably calming, finding the time to do so can be stressful for me. When the boat is in the water, I am always scheming to find more time. However, when the boat is out of the water, as sad as that is, I don't have to "worry" about finding the time to sail. Does anyone else out there have these feelings of relief, or am I the only traitor?
