Why do you sail?

I have started to go sailing with a friend. A small 16 foot hobie cat. I would love to like it, but I'm not really sure I get it. My friend wants to eventually sail around the world (on a different boat!). I'm not so sure and struggling to get past the learning stage. So why do you sail? Any tips for getting the most of it? I particularly enjoyed Pirsig's essay Cruising Blues and Their Cure which covers some of my ambivalence.

How to get to Israel?

How can I get from Turkey to Israel via boat given the current open border crossings? Does anyone know of specific companies that make this trip? If it is not possible to go direct, can I go through Cyprus or Egypt?
