“As a sailor what I learn about sailing so far is a sport that demands an inner strength far greater than most, confidence, teamwork, patience and responsibility. Sailing is more than just who can be the strongest. You have to be able to read the wind, clouds and weather patterns to determine what side of race course you will be sailing on.
You have to calculate your move and angle to the wind to make sure you are not sailing far away from your next mark. And you have to be able to put the boat together and perform some maintenance tasks to keep your boat in good sailing condition.”
