I only wish my dad could have gone. We lost him in July.
It has taken a while to get my mom out. Her only experience on a sailboat was not good (about 30 years ago).
My sisterís husband at the time, took us all out on his fathers 30'er....did an accidental jibe in about 20mph wind and put the boat over 90deg on its side.
Needless to say, she thought that was part of sailing and wanted nothing to do with it.....ever....until last week.
I am still smiling from the other day....just a great day!
