The Tillerman has posed a question. What is Caroline Flack's connection to sailing? The real question...you'll have to take a journey around the block, past Ming's Cantonese and head east to Rhode Island to find out more. (What is the sailing connection between these three photos?)
Do you want to become a better surfer, sailor or paddler? If you do, then you should jump in the water and swim. When you swim you learn pretty quickly just how the tides, currents and waves affect you. It's you and the ocean. That's intimacy.
"Everyone has his or her definition of what it means to be alive. For some, it's waking up in a big city, going to work, watching a soap opera, going to sleep... repeat, day after day. For me, that is the definition of being alive, not feeling alive. I demand more from life, I need to feel alive; and nothing makes me feel more alive than surfing. I have structured my life and sacrificed greatly in order to build my life around surfing. I don't believe in destiny, I believe that anyone, anywhere, has the ability to create the life they want to live. If I can do it, you can do it. So get out there and start living the life you want!"
