The Simple Joys of Sailing
Being on a boat out in the ocean may not be a decision you are willing to make at the moment, at least not until you find out what simple pleasures that sailing offers.
People might have become so accustomed to the noise of cities or towns, with planes passing over them or angry drivers on roads, but sailing offers peace and tranquility. Once you dock out of a harbor, you may realize just how much noise you have been drawn in by. Waves are beautiful to watch, or even surf on, especially with kids or young teenagers who just have it out to enjoy themselves. Sailing offers so much freedom, you are no longer tied down by where to go, the world becomes your oyster. You might choose to travel throughout the sea or visit islands along the way. Imagine travelers being able to go to a dream destination without the hustle of getting a ticket, then pushing through the passengers, then booking hotels, or going through long immigration lines.
Couples could have romantic dates every night and every morning if they wanted to with that beautiful view in the background. The sun is not the only star shining on a boat since stars at night become clearly visible without bright city lights to stop them. Sailing is all about taking life at a slow pace to take in the scenery for as long as possible. For those who sail across the North Pole, the Northern lights look better against a pitch-black sky without other lights. There is no rush to get out of the way, get home to cook, get back to work, just the wonderful scenes.
You might take a swim at whatever point during the day you feel a need to. Oceans are enticing, yet relaxing to swim in no more crowded pools. What’s even better is the marine life you get could see up close, dolphins, whales, and sharks. A person might not meet Ariel, but they could get to experience what it is like to live under the sea. You could take a deep-sea dive to look at fish families under the sea, as well as the coral reefs. The sunset and sunrise out there are considered more beautiful with no long buildings blocking your view.
Sailing is made so much better if your friends come along for a ride. The water can be spontaneous, offering adventures that turn into memories, and the best people to share that with are the ones closest to your heart. If a person was never a fan of seafood, it is great to know that food tastes more delicious out in the ocean. As a sailor, a person might get to meet other sailors across the ocean who could turn into friends. A person gets to be self-dependent from the skills learned while sailing. The joys of sailing are personalized and therefore experiences may be different for everyone. Sailing can be considered when writing a bucket list, for what it offers does not stop there.
