Ask the wife to take sailing classes
from a woman she likes as a person.
My wife is touchy. We took classes
from a tough male racing
sailor, which turned her off right away. Then she hurt her back trying to lift
the little Sabots we trained in into the water
. Then when I bought my first boat
and took her out the first time on a very windy day and YELLED at her, she has sailed with me very little since.
So be careful with the wife if you'd like her to be a sailing companion.
Maybe yours is tougher than mine, still tread carefully or your dreams of sailing the Caribbean
together may be just that--dreams.
