Sorry, didn't mean to imply it was any one thing that gave me the sailing bug. It was more like this last trip left me wanting to sail a lot more. You see we had just been to the painted cave on Santa Cruz, facinating. We caught a strong stern wind heading to Annacapa, got to set the sails wing-to-wing, and got that 46' Benneteau over 8 knots. For a power guy, that is idling, but on that boat it felt like flying. Then when we got to Annacapa we got into a huge group of seals and just spent the day snorkeling with them. I was having a blast, but remember thinking it would have been even better if it was me and my wife, rather than me and the guys. Don't get me wrong, I love sailing, drinking wine and playing poker with the guys, but it would have been a great trip for couples too.
