Damn stupid waste of time. But I can't stop. It's like eating.

T37Chef Other passions besides sailing, is this trick question?

There is no question the thing I'm most passionate about these days is raising our children. 6 & 8 years old, they are getting more involved in activities all the time. I just love watching them grow up and all the things they're getting exposed to. My wife and I did commit to sailing at least two weekends a month, leaving the other two for kid related activities. The time spent on the boat has become the best family times we have. Although, if one of them becomes committed to something like gymnastics or swimming, and want to compete, then we may revisit that criteria, but we'll see when the time comes.

For myself, I am of course very passionate about my cooking, which I get to share through teaching. One of the most rewarding aspects of my job, if you can call it that, is coaching our culinary team. I still enjoy biking (mountain or road) & skiing but I don't do it as often as I may prefer. I have always found woodworking very relaxing (although I wouldn't say I am anything but a novice wood worker). Last year I purchased a motorcycle, nothing serious, a Yamaha V Star, but I put over 4,000 miles on it just a few months of ownership. Riding a bike is similar to sailing in some ways, the feeling of freedom I suppose?

Other than those, during the fall/winter I am glued to NFL football on Sundays, I love my Ravens! I listen to sports radio to and from work everyday during the season, watch the NFL network everyday. Mostly what I enjoy is getting together with family & friends for the games, which usually includes cold beverages and food.

Re: What are your other passions?

As a new-to-me boat owner, I have few passions outside of that. So my list entails varnishing, painting, cushion making, my job, and then planning all of the fun I'm gonna have cleaning, painting, and varnishing once the weather warms up. Before the boat, I used to play drums, some guitar, and golf!
