There’s a whole lot more to Canadian yachting than purchasing a yacht and hitting the water. To be sure, the Yachting Lifestyle is comprised of a unique, highly rewarding collection of relaxation and sporting details—nuances that allow yachters to enjoy life at its finest.
That said, those who don’t yet know about the Yachting Lifestyle and all that it brings to the table are often uninterested in the advantages of experiencing the luxury, sophistication, and fun of Canadian bodies of water.
To help these individuals get in on the action sooner rather than later, let’s take a look at what the Yachting Lifestyle is all about.
Openness and Freedom
In today’s quick-moving society, it isn’t difficult to feel “cramped”—to feel overwhelmed (and perhaps bothered) by the nonstop nature of modern living.
Sailing provides the exact opposite of that experience.
One can travel as quickly or as leisurely as is desired, but at any speed, the openness and freedom of the water—the fresh-smelling air, the breathtaking skyline, and the unmistakable feeling that anything at all is possible—will be apparent.
And when contemporary yachts’ countless features and amenities are considered, this openness and freedom becomes that much more special.
Yacht racing is by no means required of sailors, but for anyone who’d love to satisfy their competitive spirit, racing is most certainly worth considering.
Feeling the air on one’s face, watching the water ripple underneath the yacht, and experiencing a rush unlike any other—that’s what yacht races offer, and that’s why so very many yachters decide to put their skills to the test.
Yacht racing is one of the last remaining sources of competition for the sake of competition, without malice or ill intent. The peace and serenity of the water bring with them not a few opportunities for friendly competitiveness.
Time for Family, Friends, and Memories
It can be challenging to make time for family and friends, but yachts are unique in that they remove all the “distractions,” all those seemingly unavoidable elements of life that take away from the memory-making process, and replace them with the calm and relaxation of the water.
It’s been said that the greatest conversations in the world are had aboard yachts, and it’s easy to see why that’s the case. Family, friends, acquaintances, business partners, and all others will respond enthusiastically to the numerous positives that yachting presents.
Naturally, when individuals experience the best of the outdoors, they feel their best, and their conversations—well, they’re the best, too.
Pure, Uninhibited Excitement
As veteran yachters will attest to, the pure, uninhibited excitement of the water never dies down or loses its edge. Rather, it’s one of those sensations that remains strong indefinitely, always managing to feel just as tremendous as it did initially.
The reasoning for this perpetual excitement can be attributed to the culmination of the listed points, but more than that, it can be attributed to yachts themselves. There’s a plethora of ways to experience the water, but none are as incredible or as rewarding as that of yachting.
Stated in short, there’s simply nothing like yachting, and it’s for this reason that so many enjoy the sailing way of life.
Thanks for taking the time to learn about what makes yachts as special as they are. While the magnificence and appeal of the water transcends geographic boundaries and locations, there’s something extraordinary about Canadian yachting—so much so that enthusiasts come from all corners of the globe to enjoy the nation’s clear waters and one-of-a-kind experiences.
A good friend of mine who owns Sudbury Plumbing & Heating lives on his Yacht full time in the summer months.
Stay safe, have fun, and make the most of your time on the water.
