1. Big blue.
Biggest (and most beautiful!) playing field in the world: the sea!
2. Learn something new.
The sense of pride and achievement that comes with learning to sail is priceless. There is really nothing like the feeling of becoming the master of your own boat. Whether it’s a 22 feet sailing boat or a motorboat on a local lake, or a massive ocean cruiser, skippering a boat is a great achievement.
3. Unique experiences.
No matter how many times you set sail, you will never have the exact same experience. Every trip provides the opportunity to see new and never seen places.
4. Various destinations.
What you experience depends largely on where you sail, so choosing your destination is an important factor. An advantage of sailing is that you can visit multiple destinations in one trip.
5. Good company
It’s a perfect activity to share with family and friends of all ages. Many crucials problems have been solved by sailors talking late into the night in the cockpit–unfortunately, they never seem to remember those solutions in the morning. But that’s no matter–a sailing trip is one of the best bonding experiences ever, bringing friends and family closer, and turning perfect strangers into lifelong pals. Speaking of those you love most, sailing is the ultimate way to spend quality time with family or friends on your vacation.
On the other hand, sailing is also great opportunity to spend some time alone. Leave the noise, confusion, and stress of the world behind for few days, or few weeks, and experience the freedom of solitude.
7. Relaxation time.
The best feature of a yachting vacation is the time to relax. Sailing can be relaxing, whether you are soaking the sun, lying in your hammock or enjoying the beautiful sunset evening you will charge your battery for sure.
Seeing new places is a huge part of the attraction of sailing. As your sailing skills improve, you’ll have more and more confidence and opportunity to explore new places.
9. Finding places
without Wifi! Sure, these days you can sometimes still get 5 bars in the middle of the sea. But sailing is one of the few ways where you can let your mind wander in the relative peace and quiet of the wind and waves.
You’ll get both mental and physical workout on the water! Finally, sailing will bring more happiness into your life without a doubt.
