I like sailing since I was a teenager. I like water, adventure and it makes me feel great! While sailing, you never know what may happen, but you have to solve that problem! In a way, sailing makes you very responsible and you need to trust yourself and to be calm even if you are confronted with a difficult situation. Many think that sailing is a funny adventure, but is not only that! Sailing is more: it takes a while until you become a professional and you have to learn new things everytime as you are responsible also for the life of others. Sailing means socializing as you will collaborate with your team, mainly if there is a crisis situation, so your colleagues need to know they can rely on you if something bad happens.
In case you want to become a sailor, you should think better before attending a sailing school. Sailing is not only a well paid job you need for a living, it is also a hobby and involves certain qualities you should have, both physical and psychological. Do not be charmed by how sailing is usually presented as things are not like that in the real life. You should ask yourself a few questions and try to be critical with yourself, so you will know if this job is right for you or not. Sailing is also relaxing, but you must be aware there are also a few things that are not so relaxing!
If you still do not know what to do, but you have a friend who is already a sailor, ask his opinion and maybe you will have a clearer image about how things work and if you are good at that or not. Many that have already decided they want to become sailors, think they will travel a lot, but that is not the only thing you will do, so be a little bit realistic and analyze who you are and which are your abilities. If it is helpful, make a list and write down which are all disadvantages and advantages. This way, it will be all clearer!
