I think this guy may be on to something. Many times I return from a sail feeling a palpable sense of peace and calm. Of course there are other times when panic has been more the case but that is for another post. ☺

But I am curious to know how many of us have sensed this strange mental (spiritual?) impact of being on the water on a Sailboat?

"It is not so much for its beauty that the sea makes a claim upon men's hearts, as for that subtle something, that quality of air, that emanation from the waves, that so wonderfully renews a weary spirit."
