Re: Physical Fitness

I raced bicycles for 15 years. Not in shape like that now. I could still probably ride circles around most Wisconsin cheeseheads. However, sailing demands other kinds of fitness: Some efforts require near maximal upper body efforts, and at times having agility has an impact on safety.

I plan on staying fit, to stay safe.
