The First Windpowered Vehicle, Sailboats

When I moved from St. Louis to NYC I came for three reasons: 1. the art, 2. the people, and 3. the water. Finally, I’m able to say that I am making progress on the water part. For the past two weekends, Marc and I have been taking sailing lessons off of City Island in the Bronx. It never ceases to amaze me that this great city is surrounded by water. Within 30 minutes I can be at the beach or off on a boat in the ocean. One of the nicest things about sailing is how very little you need—just sails and wind (even very little wind will do the trick). It’s incredibly eco-friendly and quite peaceful. I hope you, too, have plans to get outdoors this summer and enjoy mother nature, believe it or not it’s all around you.
