Parental Sailing Barrier

Recommended Posts

Sailing Anarchy, I come to you for help. I am looking for advise and photos to help explain sailing to my father. He has no background of boats period. Do I reaffirm the stereotypes? Do I bout about yacht club politics? Do I explain sea weed slows me down? Do I explain why I shouldn’t have lost that protest? Help!

How about you take him out for a nice day on the water with his favorite food and drink when it's blowing an easy 10-15kts? He may figure out the attraction all on his own...

Or if he's a geezer, take him down to the local Jr program and watch 8 year olds sail prams for an afternoon.

That would be a solid plan, if I didn’t have a Hobie 33. I’m thinking the equivalent is splashing him with cold water and ripping $100 bills in half. Might not leave a good impression.
