I finally realized that I like smaller boats. I like being closer to the water. I like the force of even a small gust of wind to throw me around and the way the boat dives into the water after crossing even the smallest wakes of other boats. This is when you learn how to pilot a boat. This is when you find your sea legs. This is exciting sailing. And best of all, I got to do this with some of my favorite people, Outerthere fam who mostly came out last minute because, uhh, epic sunset sailing!
