Let’s Sail Away!

If you love the ocean, try sitting on it! That’s almos what sailing feels like, but in this seat you are FLYING. I got on board for the first time with my awesome co-anchor Jim. He has been a longtime sailor so he took a few of us out on Mission Bay. WHAT A TREAT!

We escaped the realities of land for a couple hours and he taught us newbies a few of the ins and outs of sailing. We learned there is no way the boat will tip, so that helped ease my mind a lot even during big gusts. The bay is usually a very calm place to cruise around but that day there were a few minutes where the winds would pick up. That was my favorite part!

This was the first time I got the sailing bug. I get it now!

I’ll be explaining what I learned when my fiance and I took classes and became certified.

Thanks Jim for showing me what it’s like to fly with the wind, while sitting on water!
