I often tell people that when you sail for the first time, you have one of two experiences. It either becomes a one-time, bucket-list thing that you simply check off your list—or it becomes a part of your soul forever.
After that first sailing experience, I knew I wanted to be more than just a passenger. I wanted to learn to become a sailor. I wanted to participate, be an active crew member, and learn the true art of sailing—and perhaps one day become a captain. It’s a journey that even six years later continues to challenge me in ways I never thought possible.
