I'm no captain material. I'm a good matey and enjoyable passenger...
I met my husband at work and our first activity together (no yet romantically involved yet) was cleaning and painting his sailing boat. I can report that spending hours together in a small environment yepping about all kinds of topics realy makes people bond. Anyway, that is how it all started for us. The next weekend we went sailing to celebrate (the romance had already sparked)
In Holland there are many lakes and rivers to sail upon and back in the day, ahem, in the late 80's we went sailing every weekend and sometimes straight after work on a hot day.
Then we moved away from the lake arae to more forest filled land and eventualy we moved away alltogether. In Indianapolis sailing was impossible. there were two lakes but no places were available to dock a boat. I mean ????? very strange, very elitist
Philip is the major sailor in our household and when he had a chance to sail in San Diego while visiting he would go rent a boat. Now that we live here he has found some colleagues that go sailing with him or we all bring the children. The kids like it too. I never been out to sea, I am a bit motion sick so I'm not sure if that would be a good idea.
He is the type who fantasizes about retiring and sailing for weeks or months.... oh welll
Did you see the picture on my profile, san diego bay??
Good going, John ... amazing there were no sailing groups on care2. I appreciate your invite. Sounds like fun.
I've been on private and chartered sailboats ... just enJOYed while others crewed! I did try wind-surfing, but, boy, without sailing knowledge was that hard. After losing the sail in the water and having to pick up that heavy load to unload it many times, THAT was my incentive to stay up! So I learned rather than become exhausted!
May this group dream of sailing languidly on the calm seas of life.
