It was early morning but they were eager to make the most of their Honolulu private sailing lesson despite the hour. Why early? It’s a great idea to start early and build your lesson as the wind builds. What a beautiful time of day to be out there…before the heat of the day.
Yesterday’s private sailing lesson
was not only windy, it was a perfect wind to build their skills. It was a surprise for him…he had no idea until he climbed aboard that he was being given (no special reason other than LOVE) a private sailing lesson while vacationing in Honolulu. What a gift and what a surprise!!
Help set the sails and take the helm if you like as you learn the “ropes” of sailing. The first thing you learn: they are not ropes…they are “lines.” Captain Gaelyn will assist you to build your skills and confidence. For all levels of sailing experience.
Don’t dream your life, live your dream
Sailing is clouded in romance. Many people dream of a life of sailing and the adventure of perhaps one day sailing to distant shores. The reality is often different than the dream and this is important to understand.
So, before you go buy that boat, come sailing with me and begin or continue learning the skills that will gain you confidence and give you a whole bunch of joy as you succeed. Your time “out there” with me will also give you a taste of what true blue-water sailing is all about.
You don’t have to have the dream of distant shores to sign up for a lesson…you can begin by taking up sailing as a day-hobby.
Do you have someone in your life who has always had an itch to try sailing but has never had the opportunity? Buy him/her a gift certificate for a private sailing lesson. It will be the best present they have ever had!
Whatever your goal is, the lesson will fit.
Even if you are the only one who wants to learn and you don’t wish to come alone, your friends/ family are welcome on board and can enjoy the sail while you learn.
So, whether your dream is to sail the Waikiki coast or beyond that horizon (a multi-day charter is perfect for introducing you to all aspects of sailing and living aboard), your personalized lesson is waiting for you!
“You must have patience to learn the craft of sailing, which has set and orderly ways of doing each operation, schemes of success that have been polished for generations. Even the nautical vocabulary is specialized, for it is necessary to be able to describe every part of a vessel and to talk about each maneuver and action with unmistakable precision. You can learn the fundamentals quickly, but half a lifetime seems scarcely enough to perfect your techniques. A good sailor is always studying and learning and asking questions. People who travel and work on the sea tend to be literate souls who often write books. There is an astonishing library of nautical volumes that you can digest bit by bit to hurry your learning process. But in spite of the help to be got from books, you must learn about sailing at first hand. You do not become a seaman by reading. You need practice. You need to get your hands dirty” – HAL ROTH, after 50,000 miles
