I had always wanted to learn how to sail . The feeling of being able to move freely assisted by a clean free energy had always enticed me into sailing.I had always imagined myself as pierce brosnan in a role that he played in Thomas Crown Affair - a good looking billionaire with a sense of adventure, minus the good looks and money of course , ha ha. There is a certain charm and persona associated with sailing and i recently got a chance to experience it .
We were told to meet captain ali in a Marina in pulau indah where he gave an introductory lesson on the basic of sailing . He pre warned us that this is not a leisure trip and we were expected to work on board as only by doing that you learn .
After around one hour of assembling the main main sail and etc we started our journey . Unfortunately there's not much wind but we manage to cruise slowly from pulau indah to port klang . Along the way , the captain taught us a few basic knot which were essential for sailing . The journey took us 4 hours to pulau indah and all of us took turn manning different function of the yacht . From zero knowledge on sailing we did learn a lot from this trip , enough knowledge to be able to explain to my kids how sailboat works and a bragging right of " been there and done that".
