recently found a new love: sailing! Before moving to the coast of Alabama, I knew that sailing was to be high on my list of “must do”. If you’ve never experienced this peaceful yet exhilarating experience, put sailing on your list, too! I grew up on ski boats, john boats, kayaks, pontoons and the like. I have traveled on cruise ships, large and small. I’ve gone deep sea fishing on commercial fishing boats. I’ve even toured the USS Alabama and the USS Intrepid, but, I had never been on a sail boat!
The Fairhope Yacht Club is a beautiful building overlooking the bay at the end of Volanta St., which also boasts great homes within walking distance. Fly Creek is on the northern side of the Yacht Club with multiple boat slips as well. The club is upscale, yet surprisingly affordable and dinner there is always wonderful. Check out the Fairhope Yacht Club for adult and junior sailing classes! If you, too, have waited a life time to sail…don’t wait any longer. Go sailing!
