Sailing tips for single sailors to ensure a smooth voyage!

A light-hearted look at sailing tips to snag your dream sailor

Sailors are renowned for being free-spirited, exciting and adventurous people – all those qualities that make for a great relationship.  But if you’re a newbie sailor you’ll need a few sailing tips to understand those nautical terms and etiquette, just to make sure it’s pretty much plain sailing.  Let’s be honest you’ll be much happier knowing that port is the left of the boat – rather than the place you wish you’d never left!

One of the first sailing tips for dating a sailor is communication.  If you’re looking to sail off into the clear blue yonder with the potential person of your dreams you need to be able to communicate in a vertical position – as well as a horizontal position!

You don’t need to be expert but at least learn some basic sailing tips and add words like “tacking” and “gybing” to your vocabulary – even better if you know what they mean!   And learn what the boom is – and not just for the sound it makes when it hits your head on its way across the boat!

Sailing tip two.  If you fancy sipping champagne, lounging around on the deck while cruising around Caribbean, that’s all well and good.  But you have to remember it’s not all idyllic calm in those waters.  If you think all you need is a string bikini, floppy hat, designer sunglasses and Factor 30 – then think again. Those winds can change in an instant – so be prepared with the appropriate waterproof clothing for your trip – and leave the hairdryer at home!

Sailing tips regarding the vagaries of the on-board toilet are a must!  Always important after the copious glasses of champagne or whatever  your particular tipple is.  Don’t be embarrassed about asking how it works, especially if it uses a manual pump.  You must know when to wet pump and when to dry pump – it will be far less embarrassing in the long run I can assure you!

And of course one of the final sailing tips for singles is where to meet that wonderful sun-kissed sailor.  You can of course go for the local option at your sailing or yacht club.  But for the more adventurous and definitely for more choice, you can log onto Lovesail  and meet your dream sailor.  Check out Love on the High Seas.  See….. it does work!
