There’s a whole lotta lake out there

budget sailboat, budget cruising, budget sailing

Now that my boat is just about ready to go in the water–I’m scared.

Sure, I’m excited, proud and looking forward to sailing this little boat I’ve literally bled on…but I’m fucking scared.

Maybe that’s just my way with sailing, though. Maybe I’m always going to be fucking scared. And maybe doing it anyway is what will make me┬ábrave.

  1. Me too, sister. The part where she goes in the water and is all my responsibility to move and to keep afloat is terrifying. I think you are right. Acknowledging you are scared to do something and doing it anyway are what make you brave, give you experience, and build your confidence in you and the boat. Only one way to find out if you can do this.
