Sailing Totem in Annapolis for Cruisers' University

The Annapolis boat show gathers the found family of the cruising community. Connected through shared goals and experiences, we relish the opportunity to play with like-minded souls without the need to justify or explain ourselves. Fundamental goals and shared values are difficult for our land-linked family and friends to understand, making gatherings like this cathartic and joyful. Harry Potter fan? Think of this like the muggle/wizarding world distinction. Our worlds don’t interact very well, and it’s risky to try and explain the magical world we inhabit to someone on the outside! It might be Annapolis’ famed Ego Alley we’ll visit instead of Diagon Alley, and we’ll pick Pusser’s over The Leaky Cauldron – but newly minted and well salted alike take comfort amongst their own at the US Sailboat Show next week.

Jamie and I draw on this enthusiasm in the courses we teach: Friday through Sunday mornings, we’ll be lead Take The Wheel, introducing newer boaters to the decision points around getting into sailing and buying their first boat. Hopefully many of these participants will be our future learners at Cruisers U seminars, the four-day series of premium courses for gonna-go cruisers getting ready to go.
