Big on Skies

June 22, 2010

Sailing gets us away from it all. It’s a fantastic antidote to the hustle and bustle of modern life. It slows us down, it relieves the tension, it rewards the senses. It puts life and nature into perspective and provides a time to reflect.

Out there we’re vulnerable; defenceless; mortal, at the mercy of a sea; teased and sometimes bullied by the wind. We’re on our own, self sufficient, challenged! With a little skill and a great deal of respect, we harness nature’s forces to go where we please. No rebellion, only freedom!

It’s a way of life.
