Adventurous Lifestyle, Interesting Life at Gulf Charters Sailing School
Over many years of living the sailing lifestyle, I have had the opportunity to meet many others who were also involved in racing, world cruising or otherwise caught up in a world of boats and the deep blue sea. What usually comes across with these folks is that they are mostly a happy and interesting group of people to be around.
When drop the hook and dingy ashore to share refreshment with a bunch of cruising sailors at a little pub in Micronesia (Korsrae, “the island of the sleeping lady” has one of the best) you can be assured that the topics of conversation will be lively, pertinent and wide ranging.
Those sailors in that off the beaten path pub certainly come from all walks of life and lifestyles – from the well-off cruising couple aboard their new Lagoon 550 to the family of 6 with dog living on their 30 year old 38’ classic yacht to the eccentric single hander crossing the Pacific Ocean on her J-24. The diversity of characters is impressive but they will all have this in common – they will all have made an active choice to step off the normal, commonly accepted path of life in order to live the dream of blue water cruising. They made a choice to trade in a predictable shore side existence for the challenges of an ocean adventure. And if they are sitting in that pub on a small tropical island in the middle of the largest ocean in the world, they have most definitely been facing that challenge, and reaping the rewards, for some time already.
It is generally agreed that it is life’s experiences which shape an individuals personality and character. People who push themselves to experience more of what life and living have to offer tend to be more interesting and colorful.
Involvement with boats, sailing and living the world cruising lifestyle can become a step to improving and adding depth to your life. At the Gulf Charters Sailing School we will introduce you to the realities of yachting, but don’t be surprised if you wind up meeting a whole new, and more interesting, YOU!
