Sailing Against the Tide!


Red SailYesterday I watched a man sailing a boat on the river. Nothing out of the ordinary you might think! However to use sails in the ‘land of the plastic cruiser’ rather appealed to me. This was the ultimate in sailing against the tide as he tacked his way down river…

Why be conventional when there is something to try,
why follow the herd when someone asks why!
So hoist your red sail and turn into the tide,
there are so many challenges, rough seas to scream and ride!
Nothing is easy unless you give it a go,
you could just sit and watch it slip to and fro!
Or you can go and grab life by the horns,
beware the prettiest roses always have the sharpest thorns!
