Have to agree with you that there is really something magical about getting in to a sailing boat and just knowing that you have to do the work but once you do you get such amazinf satisfaction!!!

The thrill we got when the sails grabbed the wind was exhilarating. What a very special treat. It was our best experience on the trip.
