I was only thinking yesterday that I wished I had taken up sailing 40-45 years ago instead of coming to it 5 years ago.
Although I grew up in a beach suburb of Sydney
and would often go down to the harbour and ride the ferries as a kid, it wasn't until 2002 that I actually 'bit the bullet' and took sailing lessons
Since then, I sail regularly on Pittwater (other people's boats) and have had a couple of extended cruising
experiences in the Mediterranean
. I LOVE IT!
Your plans are admirable and, as a teacher, I wish you all the best in your efforts to develop an understanding (if not love) of sailing/cruising in young people.
