I think I should learn to sail before I die. In a sailboat. Perhaps on the ocean. After all, I spent a seventh of my life on the ocean, in vessels that patrolled the world. Of course, none of these used wind power and fabric for propulsion. But as crew aboard a warship crossing the Pacific and at other times crossing the Atlantic, I recall seeing adventurers on their tiny cork
For inspiration, I was reading about a couple adventurers, beginning with Robin Knox-Johnson who was first to sail solo and non-stop around the world in 1968 ( it took him 10 months to complete) and latest, Thomas Colville, whose fifth attempt at breaking the 2008 record of 57 days accomplished circumnavigation in only 49 days.
Or maybe I will just take lessons this summer on a smallboy at the Navy MWR marina and sail in San Diego Bay.
