#963 Boat Waving
Posted by Tall Ships America on December 5, 2011
What is it about being on a boat that makes you want to wave to everyone? When I am in a car, I don’t feel the urge to wave to people in the lane next to me (perhaps there would be less road rage). Out on the water, I am a waving machine. Perhaps it’s a solidarity thing – here we are, out enjoying the day on the water, and we are overwhelmed with a feeling of friendship. No matter what you are doing- working aloft, competing in a race, just sailing along, or in a Parade of Sail- there is the boat wave. It says, “Aren’t we lucky? Isn’t this awesome?!”
