I’m not sure if I’m a real sailor. I love the sea above all things, and am not happy to be away from it. But I want to be embraced by the water, not suspended above it, and so big boats aren’t my thing. Small dinghies suit me better. Ocean yachts, especially when skippered by someone else, don’t offer the same attraction. They make me feel as if I am combatting the sea, not at one with it.
