Long time reader, first post. Kind of a dilemma. I have this dream, easily attainable financially, but I’m a bit discouraged. I’m currently on va action on a tropical island with my 10 and 12 year old. Single dad full time custody.
we “chartered” a Westsail 32 for a 6 hour daysail. My problem is that now I want to kill myself. Not literally of course but god what a boring, slow, nauseating ride. Prior to this, my only other charter was a 4 hour out of Seabrook on a 43’ Hunter. I know, I know everyone hates Hunters and I get it, but it was 1,000 times more fun and enjoyable than this thing I just spent all day on.
my question is, does sailing get better than what I’ve experienced and how does one go about experiencing this? I thought this charter was going to be amazing, nope. I swear we made 3 knits max and hobby horses all day. Guess I just want to hear it gets better.
head down in paradise.
