The basics of sailing are knowing the fancy names for the different parts of the boat. The front is called the bow, the back is the stern, the right side is starboard, while the left is port. Once you get this down, when the captain calls out an order, you'll know exactly what he's referring too. For instance, "tighten the line at the bow!"
Once you get a good rhythm going, though, it's smooth sailing from there on out.
Apres-sail, a nice meal at the local cafe is always a welcome treat. In this case, the local joint is actually called, The Local!
Grab a mixed-green salad with tuna, potato, grilled portobello mushrooms, roasted artichoke hearts and balsamic vinaigrette.
And/or a grilled shrimp panini.
Then perhaps, head for a wine tasting at the Dog and Oyster Winery.
Sit in one of these pretty pastel chairs and reflect on the sailboat you're set on buying.
Then again, you might consider this piece of wisdom, before making the jump.
