Have you found yourself bitten by the sailing bug, imagining buying a boat of your own to sail over far horizons? Are you harboring big dreams to charter abroad, cross oceans, or sail around the world? In this article, learn about the best ways to get prepared for cruising adventures and receive some words of advice and inspiration from experienced Modern sailors in our community.
I started sailing at Modern at the end of 2021 and threw myself into it, spending as much time out on the water as I could. I came to Modern with some flat water dinghy sailing experience and it was quite a transition learning to sail bigger boats in much tougher conditions. There was a lot to learn, but the Modern instructors, Club Skippers and fellow Modern sailors made learning fun and rewarding. My Modern instructors were clearly very experienced sailors and sailing with them was inspiring! I want to thank the maintenance crew and office staff for their dedication and hard work - you are the folks who make things work! There is a lot more to learn and I look forward to sailing with Modern for years to come.
