Relax? No way. Real sailors never relax.
Ok maybe 1 % don't relax.
Relaxing on sailboats rocks.
You'll soon know real relaxation. If you just met the boat, there can be a tense period as the relationship gets going. You will feel more relaxed with every day you spend with her.
You will quickly learn when, where, and how to relax - with no worries.
It's natural ( and healthy) to feel a little tense as you learn about sailing and your boat.
Sail her. Sail her a lot. Play with dropping sails, heaving to (maybe not), beaching, anchoring (?), exploring, eating, chilling, etc.
Yep - relaxing is possible and will be yours. Relaxation like no other!
You're wise to keep on your toes as you learn sailing this boat. Relaxation will come as you become comfortable with the relationship.
Safe, and relaxing sailing.
take a sandwich next time out. You can always eat it back at the car.!
