Now that summer is in full swingI’ve been sailing more. I don’tconsider myself overly social,but I really do enjoy takingpeople out - especially folks thathave never been. I know there’sa good chance they’ll rememberit forever and I like having theability to give such a gift.I don’t burden anyone with tonsof safety instructions - on mycatamaran I tell them there’s anoutside chance it could
ip andif it does, hang on to the boat.I let them know where the life- jackets are and tell them they’refree to wear them. I offer up adramamine and off we go.I said to a buddy of mine theother day, “hey man, we gottaget you and the wi
e out thereagain.” He said, “I’d love to, butshe won’t go again. Her dad hada boat when she was a kid and hedid nothing but scream orders atthem when they went out. Whenwe all went out last time, she washaving
ashbacks.” I don’t everwant to be that guy. I’ve sailedwith people like that - it sucks.Lately, I’ve been going left atthe breakwall. Passing LAX, Ibear the burden of thunderous jet engines, knowing the cliffsand shallower water of PalosVerdes await. Guests are gabbyas we tack out of the harbor andtypically continue to be as weall catch our
rst glimpse of theocean in all it’s vastness. There’squestions and jokes bouncingaround as the boat and crewadjust to the new environment.After a while of traveling southcomes the moment I love most...the conversation begins toevaporate. The excitement of the novelty has relaxed and Iwatch as everyone sits silent. Idon’t know if they’re bored outof their gourds and I don’t care.Life doesn’t have many of thesemoments - a group of friends just sitting quiet. Eyes meet,people smile acknowledgment,a comment here and there. Theocean’s rhythm has calmed usand everyone somehow knowsthat right now we no longerhave to struggle to entertaineach other. Time is passing in adifferent way - a way that suitsme. This is the destination I’mafter and I’m happy to say I’vebeen there many times.
