To me sailing is freedom, to power though the water with nothing but the wind in your sails is pure bliss, to know you are at the mercy of the elements is thrilling. As someone who has been sailing for most of my life when I stepped on Y.E. I felt like I was was 7 again learning to sail for the first time all over, words cannot describe the joy I had in my heart.
I only wish I could of stayed, not having to worry about the outside world, only which direction the wind was coming from and thinking.
Bring it on Mother Nature!
