It´s interesting to investigate the recreational side of sailing, I´m by all means a professional sailor and been so for all my adult life, at the moment I work with SAR "Search And Rescue" in the Barents sea as a chef engineer
on a rescue cutter
Raised as a fisherman son, educated wooden boatbuilder
and Bc:Marine engineer
Everything threat my life has been water
connected, all but three things, Rugby, Photography
and lately lastly but definitely not leastly family!
I do dive, kayaking, competitive swimming, sport fishing
and so on.
However I never owned a sailing boat, but now it´s time! I managed to convince the wife to let me/us have a go at it!
There is at this early hour of us being a sailing family
no intentions of crossing any oceans, not that it has allot or any similarity but, been there done that on the big cargo vessels.
