My sailing adventure Part 1

I mentioned last week in my blog that I had been up to another exciting adventure around COVID-19 this year.

One of the other reasons why I’ve not had a lot of time for my photography this year is that I’ve been learning to sail!

A couple of years ago my husband and I bought a motor boat. Whilst owning a motor boat was quite fun, we never felt that you ever get the full sailing experience like you would do with a yacht.

At the end of last year, we decided we’d most likely put our Motor Boat up for sale this year. The only issue I personally had, was the fact I had never been out sailing on a Yacht and I know they are completely different to motor boats in how they sail and feel when you’re out on the water.

This concerned me as I didn’t want to jump into buying a Yacht then find out I really didn’t like it and wished we had kept the motor boat!

We therefore did our competent crew qualification on a Yacht with our local sailing centre in February this year. I absolutely loved sailing and knew that I was ready for our next adventure of getting a yacht!

Due to COVID-19, there were delays in us being able to list our boat for sale but by the end of August, we had managed to sell our boat.

I just wanted to finish this blog post with a couple of photos of my old boat taken on various film cameras:
