Why sailing ?


Because it is one of the few sports activities that the entire family can participate in - a 80 year old Grandmother and her 6 year old granddaughter can enjoy sailing together.

Because there is a simple beauty of sunshine, wind, and water which can not be realized elsewhere

Because it can be thrilling and a challenge, we learn about ourselves each time we go sailing

Because it takes us into another world.

Because watch on watch off after after some days becomes a great way to live

Beacuse nothing can match the sensation of standing a 2 am - 6am night watch with the sound of the water and boat in harmony, the stars shining bright, and one of your friends dozing in the cockpit.

Because you get to see whales and dolphins up close, really close.
