Sailing is one of the best activity to choose while traveling. The combination of an unusual cruising experience with the possibility of jumping into the chilly water or having a sunbath on the bow of the boat offers an unforgettable sea adventure for everyone.
Since I was a child, I have been fascinated by the sea. I was walking through the wide beaches, jumping over the waves and dreaming about the future where I may live in the city with access to the sea or ocean. Thanks to the ability to travel, today I regularly make my dream comes true. Thus, whenever I have an occasion to go to the beach, swim in the pure sea water or join a boat or ship trip – I take advantage of it!
Sailing is one of the possible ways of exploring unknown coastal cities when it comes to their diversity, landscape or atmosphere. What’s more, it offers an excellent alternative to the hustle and bustle city center. In general, it is a time among the vast nature which gives you an opportunity to get out of the crowds and feel the real face of your new travel destination.
In my opinion, there is nothing that makes you feel more relaxed as looking into the large mass of water, observing waves and listening to the sound of the sea. Keeping some distance from the city center, you can look at the whole picture of your current travel from a different perspective and focus on small details of a place you are visiting. It allows you to make significant observations about the city, people, culture, atmosphere and every other aspect of the normal life there. However, it would be probably impossible without taking a step outside your comfort zone and get out of the city as far as your creativity can take you! And this is often necessary to start thinking outside the box, to gain new insights and just refresh your mind.
Take a deep breath, relax and enjoy a new sea adventure!
How to organize a sailing trip
■ Simply rent a boat and get together with your best friends
If you want to rent a boat without a coxswain, remember that in Europe at least one of you need to have a sailing license.
■ Join one of the sailing meetups in your city
There are many meetups organized by the community on the Meetup.com – a service aimed to connect people who share a common passion and want to spend a free time together in an active way. Usually, sailing meetups are paid, but the costs are lower than the price of a regular boat trip held by private tour companies.
Order a boat trip organized by private travel companies
It’s relatively easy to find plenty of offers from private enterprises on the Internet; however, prices are often much higher than the costs of sailing meetups.
