Oh! To be messing about on the water – the fresh air in your hair and the spray in your face and the pure excitement of breaching the waves. Who wouldn’t enjoy a day out boating? Rowing, sailing, yachting, motoring or drifting along with the current in a dinghy. It’s no small wonder that where there is water, there is bound to be more than a boat or two.
People have always had a longing to be on the water and no one can deny that boating is one of the most adventurous activities you’re ever likely to try. Any sailor loves every minute out on the water. Yacht or paddle boat, the fun just gets better each time. Every single outing on the river, lake or ocean is a brand new adventure even if you have travelled that way a thousand times already. When you are boating there is always something different to see and experience both above and below the water.
Boating needs lots of teamwork from leaving the dock to maintaining course, so a day on the water is a great way to build on the bonds between you and your family and friends. Of course, there is also something unique about boating alone, but if you’re looking for a great family activity, boating should be on your list.
A Way to Develop Self Confidence
While boating is not as life threatening as your everyday automobiles, there is always a degree of risk which reduces with experience. Managing your boating well will do a world of good to your ego and self-confidence. Boating relies on quick decision making as well as initiation and skill. You pit yourself against nature’s elements, the waves, winds and current. If you stay afloat, you win.
Great for Health
So many people go boating for its health benefits. Being close to water itself is relaxing and soothes your nerves and generally leaves you feeling better about the world. However, boating is also a great physical exercise, especially if you choose sailing or paddling a kayak or canoe. Every muscle in your body gets a good workout.
Whether you’re a highly experienced boater or you’ve just started, you will always have fun doing it. You can enjoy many other activities at the same time, like wake surfing and wakeboarding or towing your teens in a tube, skimming at a great speed over flat water, shooting white water in your kayak or simply jumping in and trolling for fish. The opportunities to make your boating experience even more exciting are endless.
It is easy to see why boating is an enjoyable activity. If you’ve been looking for a great place to enjoy boating in Wisconsin, you should certainly check out Lake Geneva Marina.
