What Hooked Me
To feel the wind on your face whilst your boat glides through water. If the wind is blowing softly, the quiet is what you will notice first. The harder the winder, the noisier it gets, but then, it is also exciting.
When the boat heels high, everyone who’s not at the helm, pop to the high side, trying to weight it down as much as possible. Most of the time the boat isn’t going too fast, but the combination of motion, wind and inclination makes it feel like there is speed… the first time it happens the adrenaline hits your system and you will either hate it or love it… forever.
For me, it was the latter.
