anybody else in this boat
Belliegirl2, my ultimate dream is to sail to the Med, and live aboard in Spain, Portugal, France, Italy, Greece and elsewhere, seeing the sights, visiting museums, crawling all over ancient ruins, and dining in European restaurants. That dream might happen, but if it doesn''t, I''ll be happy cruising Florida, the islands and the east coast. If that doesn''t happen, I''ll be happy sailing up and down an inland lake somewhere. Dream big dreams, but be happy with whatever good things you accomplish.
Try to gradually build your spouses interest in sailing, but if it doesn''t take, then go to "plan B." Many of my sailing friends have spouses who aren''t into sailing, so they singlehand their boats, or sail with their children or with friends. Where I sail, there are three women who jointly own a boat, and they daysail and race it together.
