Cruising Outpost

Cruising Outpost is a sponsor of the Pacific Sail & Power Boat Show Seminar Series.

The first day I went on a sailboat I thought I was going to die. I was amazed that the guy who was steering said boat didn’t even look concerned. As the wind caught the sail and we heeled over, I grabbed this big old chromed thingy (I later learned it was called a winch) and hung on for dear life. Now, 100,000 miles and 35 years later, I still get a excited when I head out to sea. Only now the excitement is the knowledge that, sometime between when I cast off and re-tie to the dock, something will happen that I will remember for the rest of my life. That is why I live to sail, and that is why I enjoy being a part of the family that brings this lifestyle to hundreds of thousands who have never tried it. – Bob Bitchin, Editor
