“There is no more thrilling sensation I know of than sailing. It comes as near to ying
as man has got to yet - except in dreams.”
Jerome K. Jerome, Three Men in a Boat

“I really don’t know why it is that all of us are so committed to the sea, except I think
it’s because in addition to the fact that the sea changes, and the light changes, and
ships change, it’s because we all came from the sea. And it is an interesting biological
fact that all of us have in our veins the exact same percentage of salt in our blood
that exists in the ocean, and, therefore, we have salt in our blood, in our sweat, in our
tears. We are tied to the ocean. And when we go back to the sea - whether it is to sail
or to watch it - we are going back from whence we came.”
John F. Kennedy, Remarks at the Dinner for the America’s Cup Crews

“Sailing a boat calls for quick action, a blending of feeling with the wind and water
as well as with the very heart and soul of the boat itself. Sailing teaches alertness
and courage, and gives in return a joyousness and peace that but few sports afford.”
George Matthew Adams

“A tradewind starts gently, without gusts — a huge ocean
of air that slowly and resolutely begins to move with
ever-increasing strength. Suddenly everything comes to
life. Spirits rise as the sails ll. The boat heels slightly and
moves ahead. The almost oppressive silence gives way
to the sound of the bow cutting through the water. Gone
is the sea’s glassy surface, and with it the terrible glare.
Close the hatches and ports! We’re sailing again!”
Jim Moore, By Way of the Wind
11
“There are good ships and wood ships, ships that sail the sea, but the best ships
are FRIENDSHIPS may they always be!”
Irish proverb
12
“The house was built on the highest part of the narrow tongue of land between
the harbor and the open sea. It had lasted through three hurricanes and it was built
solid as a ship.”
Ernest Hemingway
16
“Wind is to us what money is to life on shore.”
Sterling Hayden
19
“There is nothing more enticing, disenchanting, and enslaving than the life at sea.”
Joseph Conrad
20
“Sailing is the closest I can get to nature - it’s adrenaline
fear, a constant challenge and learning experience, an
adventure into the unknown.”
Daria Werbowy
23
“It isn’t that life ashore is distasteful to me. But life at sea is better.”
Francis Drake
24
“There is nothing like lying at on your back on the deck, alone except for the
helmsman aft at the wheel, silence except for the lapping of the sea against the side
of the ship. At that time you can be equal to Ulysses and brother to him.”
Errol Flynn
29
“That’s what sailing is, a dance, and your partner is the sea. And with the sea you
never take liberties. You ask her, you don’t tell her. You have to remember always that
she’s the leader, not you. You and your boat are dancing to her tune.”
Michael Morpurgo, Alone on a Wide Wide Sea
30
“We of the sea come to know each other quickly; our loves,
like our hates, are born of sudden dangers.”
Lew Wallace, Ben-Hur: A Tale of the Christ
32
“There is nothing - absolutely nothing - half so much worth doing as simply messing
about in boats. In or out of ‘em, it doesn’t matter. Nothing seems really to matter,
that’s the charm of it. Whether you get away, or whether you don’t; whether you arrive
at your destination or whether you reach somewhere else, or whether you never get
anywhere at all, you’re always busy, and you never do anything in particular; and
when you’ve done it there’s always something else to do, and you can do it if you like,
but you’d much better not.”
Kenneth Grahame
37
“The desire to build a house is the tired wish of a man
content thenceforward with a single anchorage. The
desire to build a boat is the desire of youth, unwilling yet
to accept the idea of a nal resting place.”
Arthur Ransome
38
“Ships are the nearest things to dreams that hands
have ever made.”
Robert N. Rose

I’ve always wanted to sail around the world in a hand-
made boat...”
