Give me the refreshing smell of the ocean
Give me the shining light glowing on the clear blue canvas
Give me the burning tightness on my face
Give me the flawless, glistening blue path
Give me the lulling motion of the water beneath
Give me the quiet splashing against the hull
Give me the bold, bright orange balls bouncing atop the waves
Give me the cooling puffs to power my boat
Give me the chilly droplets jumping off the water as I glide
Give me the serenity of sailing in a race
