Have you ever thought about spending your summer vacation aboard a yacht? But not as a jellyfish, evenly spreading over the sun lounger on the deck and lazily sipping champagne. And not a passenger who was taken to interesting places in order to go diving or fishing. Have you ever imagined yourself as the captain of a sailing ship?

Have you ever thought about spending your summer vacation aboard a yacht?
But not as a jellyfish, evenly spreading over the sun lounger on the deck and lazily sipping champagne. And not a passenger who was taken to interesting places in order to go diving or fishing.
Have you ever imagined yourself as the captain of a sailing ship?
Motorists, perhaps, are familiar with this feeling when a disobedient alien “horse” suddenly begins to obey you, to carry you in the right direction; you merge into a single organism, where a person plays the role of a brain that gives commands; and a car or yacht fulfills them without question. And an indescribable feeling of confidence and power over the elements grows in my soul ...
And this is just the tip of the iceberg ...
What else does yachting give people?
1. Change of scenery
Crises occur periodically in life, and this is normal. When it's not clear where to go next, the best option is to temporarily change the scenery around you and escape from the routine.
In this regard, sailing is simply prescribed by the doctor. Even within the same water area, constant changes in weather and landscape, new discoveries on the coast and in the depths of the sea await you. In addition, the sea wind has an amazing ability to blow everything out of your head. And soon you will begin to be visited by such insights that would hardly have formed while sitting in your own office, or on a bike ride in a familiar park.
Do you know what a cunning dirty trick the Western old people are doing to their grandchildren, who cherish hopes for an early inheritance? They are retiring not to retire, but to sea.
Yes Yes. Due to the high concentration of iodine, magnesium and other minerals, sea air has a preservative effect... And yachting gives the necessary physical activity, which allows keep in great shape.
When such an old yachtsman comes to visit his relatives, and the grandchildren with timid hope ask: "Well, how are you there?" He smiles at them with a ceramic smile and, flexing his muscles, goes to roll his great-grandchildren on the backs.
Even in the process of studying at the sailing school, you will make new acquaintances. During the cruise, you will also meet new interesting people, perhaps even from other countries. Your network of contacts will constantly grow. Often from such acquaintances, a strong friendship or long-term cooperation grows, which is not hindered even by distance.
During the learning process, you will need to master new skills, receive new knowledge in physics, meteorology, medicine. You just physically feel how new neural connections are formed and strengthened in the brain, your horizons are expanding.

5. Family business
Nothing brings people together like the limited space of a yacht in the middle of the open sea.
But seriously, then yachting provides an excellent opportunity for an active holiday with the whole family. It is under sail that you will feel like one team with a common goal that conquers the sea and opens up new lands. It is in working together on a ship, while eating or talking; when social media, TV, or work calls are not distracted, then there is a sense of unity.
And to be honest, our children often get used to studying the world through the screen of a gadget. Your example will help the child see an alternative - how interesting and exciting real life can be, how much richer and more emotional a real journey and live conversation. Perhaps, looking at you, the son or daughter will also be fond of yachting.
10 reasons why kids should sail
Of course, yachting is not a cheap activity, even if you do not buy a boat, but take it on a charter. And you can't do without "tasting"! That's why Interparus developed as part of his sailing school Weekend course. For three days, you can try on the skin of a sea wolf and see if it was sewn by your standards.
