A couple weeks ago I started learning how to sail. Aside of my constant will to learn new things, especially outdoor related activities, I find the possibility to be my own captain promising.
While looking for summer trips with my friends I came across a website which promotes yacht chartering. We live in a time where sea sports has become affordable for average income people.
You can chart a yacht in e.g. Italy for one week that accommodates eight people for about 4000€. Add some costs for diesel and provisions and divide it by eight paying people and there you go. For less than a 1000€ per person you and your family/friends can spend a week on sea going wherever you want.
In May I will have the theoretical and practical sailing exam. After successfully passing it, you will be getting posts and Vlogs from me wearing a captain’s hat (unless we don’t sink before I upload the content).
Cheers and derush
