    My Victoria sailing boat.
    Itโ€™s my first sailing experience, but itโ€™s lots of fun!
    Better than fishing ๐Ÿ˜Š

    Sailing is so relaxing too! It doesnโ€™t need to be racing to go from point to point, but just harvesting the wind, seeing your sailboat glide over the water, sails tight. This is so enjoyable!

    Hello welcome to the world of Sailing! You have to work all the time with a sailing boat, and it is much more rewarding than seeing an electric boat running.
    Don't get me wrong I have a lot of electric scale type models but when the wind is right, sailing wins every time.

    If you are not doing it already see if you can get a couple of buoys in the water or choose a point to sail to in the best time.

    Sailing courses are set with the first leg into wind and usually triangular in design. This gives you a chance to sail into wind, tacking, with the wind on the side, reaching. and down wind, running.
    See if you can run with the wind with the jib on one side and the main on the other, it's called Goose-winging, needs careful sailing.

    One thing to impress on all is to keep an eye where your yacht is going, we all know where it is but......

    Do you think you might venture into building your own? Also have you sailed full size boats?
    good wishes
    Roy
