Spring is here and its time to start up the blog again and take advantage of the great weather we have been having. I love this shot from a super high wind session the other day at a sailing instructors clinic with colleague Alex Byczko. Capsizing is a part of the fun of extreme dinghy sailing just make sure you have the right gear on and layer up. Message us if you have any questions about what gear to wear to be safe and have fun on the water and be sure to follow the Alex, the big cheese of sailing, on Instagram ... he has some absolutely stunning photos that really show what sailing is all about.
Learning to sail is one of the best things you can ever do in life whether for you or for your kids (if you have any). I've been meaning to write a post on this topic for a while now and I've also spoken to some friends and colleagues to create a series of instructional videos and tutorials because I love teaching others this amazing experience. I have always said I love teaching as much as doing. Sharing your knowledge with others is one of the greatest things you can do in life.
I haven't had the chance to follow up on this yet, but as if the universe was reading my mind, yesterday I received an email from someone who wrote an article on just this topic. Her name is Jen Miller and she has an great website called Jen Reviews which provides honest reviews and in depth articles on a variety of subjects and products. She appreciated using some of our posts for her research and in turn wanted to share her article to our readers and subscribers and Im happy to do so. So for people learning to sail, here is a great read for you:
It was great to meet so many new people and introduce them to the Joys of Sailing at the Learn To Sail Info Night at MEC. Thanks to the Canadian Albacore Association and St. Jamestown Sailing Club for the invite. Spent a good portion of the night chatting with sailing instructor and fellow wind and water sports enthusiast Alex Byczko whose got some great things going on ... Hopefully we will collaborate on some projects down the road, but until then follow his adventures on Instagram HERE.
