Jeongok Port (전곡항): experience sailing

"I wanted freedom, open air and adventure. I found it on the sea."
                                                                                   — Alaine Gerbault, Sailor

I've never tried it, I always saw it, people talk about it and now I know why its so. Sailing.

They say its for the rich, but you don't have own a boat to experience it. At Jeongok Port, you can experience the sun, sea and wind.

I must say this was the first time I tried sailing and it was really fun. Here we were able to rent a boat for a few hours and sail around the bay. The operator even let me steer the boat even if i had no experience whatsoever in sailing. I felt like a captain steering the boat to some adventure. No wonder those who've tried it just fall in love with it. There's a certain sense of calm and at the same time, danger which excites the spirit, all this for KRW 10,000.

Be a captain for a day. Behind me are some pretty smart and trained sea gulls. You can feed them some crackers as you sail around the port.
