I used to sail. Was pretty fun.

 

Same. Need to do more of it nowadays.

 

Funny how few hobbies people on here have beyond wanking and posting about football.

 

I always feel like Rutger Hauer in Bladerunner when i talk about my sailing experiences.

Sailing is great, use to do quite a bit when I was a kid and now try and get away for a week or so every summer off the west coast of Scotland.

 

I'm no expert, in fact I know fuck all but I enjoy it. Seem to learn loads in the week when I go away in the summer then by the next time I go I have forgot everything.

Went sailing once a month at secondary school, usually on toppers - absolutely loved it. It's something I'd like to take up again if I could be arsed to find anywhere to do it.
