I'm going to buy a sailboat and sail around the world
    #3882546 - 03/07/05 02:56 PM (11 years, 9 months ago)

Okay, ever since I was a little girl I've wanted to be on a sailboat. The ocean just represents freedom and excitement to me. When I was a teenager I decided I was going to buy my own and live aboard for awhile. Then for awhile, I forgot about my plans and got married and all that. But now the dream is returning and I have renewed my determination to purchase my own liveboard, blue-water sailboat!! Yes, I realize that sailing the oceans can be perilous. And I also realize that purchasing a good sailboat will be VERRY expensive. But I want to do it soooo bad.

If I'm on my deathbed and I haven't sailed around the world then I will be so disappointed in myself. Really if I work hard, there's no reason why I couldn't do this. I've began the process of convincing my husband. You see I've always known that a stationary life isn't for me. Why should I settle for the typical American life...I want to explore the planet and have adventure. Damnit. I think I'll be able to convince him.

What do you think? Sound like a good idea? Have you ever wanted to do this?

No. My dad was going to buy me sailing lessons when I was younger, but they never materialized.

It's going to be a process. I fully intend to be a good sailor with lots of lessons underneath my belt before I buy my own boat.

I went sailing for a week in the Florida Keys. Damn that was awesome (once you get your sea legs)

I'd say the part that takes the most getting used to (besides the never ending up and down rocking) is calling left and right "starbird" and "portside" or something.

Sleeping while a boat is rocking to and fro is a little trying as well, eventually you get used to it though.

i used to be pretty good at passing out while thinking the world was dangling from a string with a huge cosmic feline batting at it... shouldnt be a problem for me.

Acid doesn't give you truths; it builds machines that push the envelope of perception. Whatever revelations came to me then have dissolved like skywriting. All I really know is that those few years saddled me with a faith in the redemptive potential of the imagination which, however flat, stale and unprofitable the world seems to me now, I cannot for the life of me shake.

It's even more fun when you are on dry land, and are still walking with a low center of gravity as if the planet is going to make a sudden jerking motion

Oh my god I'm so excited!!!

I found a sailing academy that's neaby where I live!!

Okay, and I'm thinking I want my first boat to be at least a 45 footer with at least three state-rooms.  That will probably be all I can afford to start out.  Most staterooms can sleep 2-3 people, + there is the couches in the living room.  That will allow a good handful of shroomerites to come and do a sail!

Wouldn't it be badass to sail from the US to say...HOLLAND??!! 

:grin:

Oh, and I'm not too worried about my sealegs.  I seem to be really good at adapting to motion.  If not, I'll just enjoy the scenary from my position hanging over the rail.  :cool:

In preparation for this journey you should watch Captain Ron with Kurt Russell. You should watch it 9 times.

The Perfect Storm

Although it's not about sailing, it's about "boating" I suppose.

Either way, Do not rent this movie!
