This Guide Teaches Sailing Enthusiasts Everything They Need To Know About Sailing.
Sick of Just Going Along for the Ride?
After being introduced to the joys of being on sailboat I realized that I really wanted to be able to enjoy the freedoms that knowing how to sail could offer me.
Once I learned how to sail I could -
Stop hoping that my friend would be in the mood to take his sailboat out and go out on the water whenever I felt like it
Book my own vacation time on a boat rather than work my schedule around what others were doing all the time
Completely be in control of where I wanted to take a trip rather than just tagging along
Be spontaneous and sail my boat in a completely new direction if I wanted (such as around the other side of that island that nobody else wanted to visit)
Live by my own rules and eat what I want and sleep when I wanted
Take my friends and family out for a beautiful vacation in the sun whenever I wanted
Be qualified enough to sail other people’s boats for them
Feel confident enough in my own abilities to sail so that I could buy my own vessel and enjoy sailing it full time
Compete in sailing events and win awards!
Was I able to accomplish everything that I mentioned on the above list. The answer is "Yes!"
Let me tell you how this book came to be ...
After six weeks of enjoying going out on Lake Windermere in a small sailboat my frustration at not being able to sail the the thing myself was actually becoming visible.
After all I had always loved the water and my friend who owned the boat knew it. After watching me wistfully observe how he was rigging the hull and rising the sails he took it upon himself to teach me how to become a sailor
I then spent six weeks of going out on the boat every day learning how to sail. What I learned during those sunny wonderful days makes up the contents of my book.
