I was sailing last Sunday, and a couple came over to us and started asking questions about the 16, so I offered them a ride, and they were brave enough to sail with me !!! They had a blast, I could see the look on their faces as they enjoyed the magic of going fast with just the power of the Wind. They could not stop telling me how much fun they had. They loved it !!!!!
I have to admit, the first time I went sailing on my 16, I had never sailed before, not on any sailboat or Hobie, and I was so excited and happy I was feeling like a new person. Sailing, changed the way I see boating, it changed the way I see life, and made me a better and more patient, calm, and happy person. After so many years of boating, both in the Navy and in my own outboard boats, sailing surprised me with a rush of new life, a much better attitude towards Time and Nature, and I feel like a new Man. I just hope that before I die, I can get at least one person to learn sailing.
Every second that passes cannot be recovered, so make good use of every one of them that you have left.
