"If you are a person who enjoys being on the water, enjoys the feeling of freedom and adventure you get from being on a yacht with your friends and family and breathing the fresh clean sea air, then I have one simple piece of advice for you, learn how to sail!
There are many reasons I can think of why I would encourage any boating enthusiast to learn how to sail but the first and, in my opinion, most important is it's fun! There is really no more exhilarating feeling than being at the wheel of a yacht. Navigating the open water and coaxing your vessel to act and react just how you want her to is one of the most exciting feelings a person could ever experience. Whether your cup of tea is fishing, entertaining friends and family, or just getting away from the hustle and bustle of city life and spending time on the water, yachting is a hobby that has so much to offer.
If you've ever been on a yacht you know how amazing it can be. When you're on the water you feel like the whole ocean is your own. Now imagine that you are the captain of that yacht. The ship goes where you want her to go when you want her to go there. There is really no experience quite like it. Your family and friends will be amazed when you take control of the vessel and take them on the adventure of a lifetime.
Not only can learning to sail be your ticket to fun and adventure, it also makes good economic sense. If you do not know how to sail and you want to spend a day on the water you have to charter a boat AND a crew to sail it. Once you learn for yourself how to captain the yacht you no longer need to hire a crew every time you want to take it out. Now, you are in charge and you can hit the water whenever you want and it will cost you considerably less. You can charter that yacht, or better yet invest in your own, and begin your adventure as captain of the ship!"
