Since buying my sailboat 10 months ago I've come to enjoy sailing alone. Most of my friends want to 'have the adventure' once but are not interested in actually learning to crew. Letting people have the helm means correcting them constantly. They think it's like a powerboat or cannot fathom that it takes concentration and watching the sails. I have to elevate the boom as to avoid serious injury. My enjoyment and relaxation are nonexistent. I now enjoy more than anything going out alone. I will sail with other persons but they tend to be on their own boats. Is there anyone else with similar experiences? Is it bad that I do not want to take others out? What are your thoughts?
