Gilbert is also a photographer and painter. Check out his photos on his blog and paintings on Facebook. Be sure to be listening as well as looking.
To quote Gilbert:
"The art is not just to be skilled enough to paint and draw, but rather to look. Art of Looking.
Look, look, look. Listen, listen, listen with attention.
There is a lot to learn that way. And this learning is the key to understanding."
This is true in sailing as well. Use your senses. Be there.
Until next, sweet sailing.
