Re: exercise

Bring your bike along cuz you will have plenty of opportunities to explore the fabulous places you get to sail to. Have a rowing dinghy and your assured of another good form of excercise. If hauling water and diesel jugs is not enough for you then swimming and snorkeling will give you some more excercise. As somebody else mentioned you are motivated now, so sailing should not get in the way. PS. We are going to ride our bikes through Thailand later this year....

Re: exercise

When sailing alone doesn't give you enough targeted exercise, we had the help of a physical therapist whose father was a liveaboard. Resistance bands wrapped around the mast, and fenders as an impromptu pilates ball, worked for the rest.

Re: exercise

I sailed a sunfish for a little over an hour last night.....15-20 with twitchy little shifts from SW to to W. Between the shifts & the gusts it was all I could do to collapse on the dock upon my return. If you're worried about a lack of exercise, sail the little boats.

Re: exercise

I'm a big out of shape guy, and was surprised how much work it was flopping around the deck on tacks. Grinding away on the winches just added to the workout. After a few weeks the pants are getting looser.

Re: exercise

Sedentary? If I don't get a motor for my dinghy, I'll look like Hulk by the time the boat comes out of the water!

Row myself out to the boat; the phone rings; my brother is on the pier. Row back and get him; it rings again; my wife heard I was gonna be onboard and stopped by. Row back to get her and bro tells me we're out of ice...

I know, I know... we should all have such 'problems'.

Re: exercise

I'm 55 and stay reasonably active -- aerobics or lifting a total of five days a week, for example. Last week, I was out for about 4 hours and since I was a little out of practice, I worked pretty hard on tacking and jibing. So much so, that when I got home, I was surprised how tired and how sore I was. It can be a quite rigorous workout, but since I enjoy it so much, I don't realize how hard I'm working at times.

It ain't sedentary at all.
