Post Stop With the Excuses! Learn to Sail Now
Stop With the Excuses! Learn to Sail Now
by: Peter Shannon

You’ve always wanted to learn to sail. You are almost ready to sign up for that sailing school but your fears keep holding you back. Well, no more excuses.

Maybe you don’t know how to swim. Lots of sailors can’t swim. The chances of you going in the water are small because only the small dinghies have much risk of tipping over. As long as you are not sailing alone and the boat is decent size, there is little chance of going overboard. Plus you will have a life jacket and the you will make sure your crew is practiced in crew-recovery procedures. Not knowing how to swim is no excuse!

What about seasickness? This is real but it is not a valid excuse. Lots of sailors have it and deal with it. There is medication available to ease it but another way to deal with it is activity. Busy yourself with sailing the boat. If you are not sailing at the moment, find some other activity. The key is to keep your mind occupied and the seasickness will not have a chance to take hold.

Think sailing is only for the young and strong? Think again. Whether you are 75 years old, 5 feet tall and 100 pounds, blind or in a wheelchair - you can learn to sail. Modern sailing vessels and equipment are available that enable just about anyone to sail with ease and excel at it too.

Is money an issue? You think you can’t afford sailing? Sure people can and do spend gobs of money. But it is not required. Sailing lessons are available by the hour at reasonable rates. Be sure to go to a certified commercial sailing school. You don’t have to own your own boat. Joining a sailing club is a great way to enjoy year round access to a boat without the expense and hassle of maintaining your own boat.

Another way to sail cheap is gain some skill and go out sailing as a crew member. Boat owners know the importance of having a good crew. Your skill and reputation will open the door to many sailing opportunities.

Maybe you like the idea of sailing but it all just seems too complicated. Well, it doesn’t have to be. Sure there is equipment that you will have to learn how to use and language that you are unfamiliar with. But it’s like anything else new. Take it a little at a time. With each new thing you learn the whole process looks easier and less complicated. It will be no time at all before you will be wondering why you ever thought you couldn’t do it.

Whether you dream about a tranquil sailing vacation on the lake, the freedom of an ocean sailing cruise to the Caribbean or maybe challenge of sailing race or two – there really are no good excuses. Sign up for that sailing school today and start after your dream.
