The Rough Sea :: Creative Writing Sailing Essays
The Rough SeaThe small whitecaps lapped against the starboard side and then retreated. It had been rough since the start and would be until they reached the mol in the harbor. Bob, finishing pulling on the ropes to raise the masts, turned towards the wheel and slowly turned around the rocks. He moved to the back of the boat and sat on the place where the lifejackets were kept. Near the masts vocal rocked up and down and up with the waves. It was a feeling like no other to him the fact that the gentle movements could turn rough at any cartridge clip gave him so much pleasure from the start of the charge to the finish. He loved to sail out as far as he could go aheadhand he got tired from the rocking motion and had to stop going farther. He loved trying to venture farther and farther out each time before he had to turn back his favorite fraction was the rough sea where the waves were rougher and rougher as he kept going. A sudden gust made him echo about turning back, but he k new that they had gone too far to turn back, and he knew he had to keep going until the waves had reached their peaks. Then they passed a part of the water where the waves suddenly stopped and quickly gave way to a very calm feeling inside of him so that he could relax and recollect the ride so far. That was a real surprise, wasnt it, Rob? Frank said. It got me, too. I wasnt ready for it, and it jumped me. Yep. Almost fell over when we hit it, Bob called back to his friend, straight near the bow of the boat. Hows the water look over there? Pretty good, but it looks like therere some rough caps ahead. They braced themselves as they passed over the rough caps, slowly moving around the biggest ones so that the craft wouldnt capsize. Bob kept a strong hold on the wheel and made sure that they would protest the waves. On the horizon they could see the buildings of the town. The sky had started to get dark. Both of them hoped it would not start to rain until they were in the harbor. The y could see the light starting to come from the breakwater lighthouse. Great day for sailing, Bob said to Frank.
