The journey is a process, and sometimes that process is miserable. What do you do when sailing in the middle of the ocean and a storm hits you? It’s completely uncontained and uncontrolled: the clouds are violent, the rain drops - massive, like coins pounding noisily on the bow, and you have a lightning rod (called a mast) attached to you.
Sailing for the pleasure of sailing is really a great experience. Though I believe the "storm of emotions" that fulfils the souls of those on the boat during the storm. But look at the positive side: you will have what to tell to you grandchildren when you will have them:)
