Never too late to teach an old dog new tricks
This year I celebrated my 50th birthday. I remember thinking not all that long ago that 50 was really old. Yet here I am and it doesn't feel that bad.
Conscious that time is marching on, I've resolve to progress from dinghy sailing to yachts. So, in September this year I did my Competent Crew, this weekend I take my Day Skipper Theory and if all goes well at the beginning of Feb 2016 I will do my Day Skipper Practical. My plan is then to do some mile builders to gain more experience and then buy a 30ft boat at the end of 2016.
From there I intend to progress further, culminating in owing a 40ft and taking to the oceans of the world.
I haven't really considered the enormity of the task I have set myself. I think if I did I would terrify myself. Instead I'm taking small steps and concentrating on the immediate challenge in hand.
Wish me luck!
