What are your other passions?

I love to sail. I also love to do other activities. What are the other things you are passionate about? Or maybe sailing is not your primary passion.

Photos a plus.

I'll start.

My wife and I also enjoy...
Mountain biking
Scuba diving
Skiing
Hiking/snow shoeing

Former passions:
Auto racing(road)
British auto restoration(not easy to do living on a boat)
Wood working(all boat related now)
Home restoration
Windsurfing(still do occasionally but not passionate)

Re: What are your other passions?

I am not a big fan of the cold or cold related activities (except for sailing to get AWAY from the cold) but I can relate to scuba and mountain biking. Once I get my cruiser, I will be carrying my Trek on any and all longish cruises that would have me at least overnighting

Re: What are your other passions?

We do a lot of crabbing and prawning, gardening, building stuff in the garage, I shoot trap and pistols, a little bird hunting, community projects, and the rest of my time is spent on boat maintenance, projects and repairs. Oh, and when my grandson is here on the island that's what I do:-))
