All Aboard: Top 4 Things We Adore About Sailing

Coastal living here in Florida is a way of life. There’s a bounty of benefits to living close to the water, but for us, the top one has to be sailing. We’re addicted to the fun, freedom, exhilaration, and peace it gives us. 

So, ask yourself: when was the last time you felt the warm breeze on your face as you set sail? Whether it’s a vacation experience or an after-work wind-down, sailing is the ideal way to float your boat. And the thing about sailing is that it’s not just fun. It’s jam-packed with benefits for your body and mind. That’s why for us, sailing is in our veins. Let’s look at our top 4 sailing benefits.

  1. Body

When you sail the yacht yourself, you know you’re going to feel the workout. That’s because it can be physically demanding on deck. Controlling a large vessel requires the tugging and lifting of sails and the handling of ropes. This all adds up to great toning and conditioning of the body. The first benefit you’ll notice is increased muscle stamina, especially in your shoulders and back. You’ll also improve your cardiovascular health since you’re taking in more oxygen, enhancing your blood flow. Sailing helps the body become more agile, alert, and flexible and boosts hand-eye coordination.  

  1. Mind

We challenge anyone to come aboard in a bad mood and stay that way. It’s impossible! Sailing boosts your mindset and mental health. It’s the ultimate way to help you to get out of your head and get away from it all. When you sail, you leave the stress, worry, and pressure of life and work at the dock. For many, sailing is their zen; their work-life balance; their happy place. So, climb aboard, take in the sound of the waves, and feel the calm.

  1. Explore

If you’re new to Florida, the best way to get the lay of the land is to get out sailing. It’s the ultimate way to feel the Florida vibe and explore the area in style. Our exclusive charters into the Gulf of Mexico allow you to explore the seas on a sailing yacht. We sail from Blind Pass, Treasure Island, and allow you to explore paradise. 

  1. Relax

With the captain and crew doing all of the heavy lifting, you really get to relax and unwind. Sit back, feel the SEASALT wind and Florida sunshine on your face, and absorb the view. Take your relaxation to the next level and tuck into a charcuterie board and drink a complimentary bottle of champagne. Can you imagine a better way to enjoy nature’s masterpiece?

Wanderlust

Some days, you feel that irresistible pull of the water, calling to you. On other days, you’ve been working too hard indoors and need a dose of vitamin Sea. Perhaps you’ve always wanted to sail, or you sailed years ago and promised yourself that one day you’d always get back on the water. Today is that day. 

One sunset or sunrise on the water can wash away the clutter of our day-to-day life. There’s no denying that sailing is therapeutic. For us, as a team of highly experienced real estate agents, sailing is an essential part of our coastal life, and we can’t imagine working, living, or sailing anywhere else. 

Let’s soak up the sun, sea, and SEASALT breeze. Sailing is freedom, and there’s a big world out there to explore. Join us for Sunset Sails, Half and Full Day Sails – captain and crew included. Won’t you come aboard?
