I have always had a passion for all things nautical, even though I am not an accomplished swimmer, but I sometimes crew on boats, (wo)manning the jib sail and assisting with the mainsail and of course, for long races, all hands on deck are required for the hoisting and managing of the spinnaker. I received a lot of sailing instruction and even have a certificate of completion for several courses from my local yacht club's sailing school. A local instructor was kind enough to 'show me the ropes' so I got a lot of experience in sailing in all sorts of weather conditions. The sea is my first love. I especially enjoy the freedom it brings from the daily hassles of life on land.
