I have always had a deep connection with water and the ocean. (no pun intended) I guess it is only natural then, that I should feel the same way about sailing. I feel very at home on a sailboat. I had the recent opportunity to spend a summer crewing on a J30 sailboat race team for a local yacht club in Raritan Bay. I learned so much about the sport and techniques of sailing in that summer. I want to sail warm tropical waters for months at a time and explore, and someday I will do that.
