I am always fascinated by the craft of sailing a boat well, whether it's a small dinghy or a large ocean racer. The fundamentals are beautifully simple: balance wind and water using hull and sail. The practice is also endlessly complex and rich. Someday, for a moment, I'll get it right but until then, I'll keep at it and enjoy the ride.
