You know when you're young and impetuous you sometimes do foolish things! When I first began teaching swimming, I went to the New York boat show and I bought a small 12-foot Hobie Cat sailboat. I didn't know how to sail, I didn't have a place to keep the boat and I certainly didn't live near water. The company that sold me the boat said that they would teach me to sail in a classroom. After two months I learned to sail very nicely on paper. I picked up the boat and brought it up to the Catskills where my folks were staying for the summer.
