Hello, I'm sure this topic has been discussed many times over, but I found very little current
info using the search functions on this site.
My wife and I grew up on the MS Gulf Coast
and have been land-locked in Colorado for a decade now. We're looking forward to retiring back on the coast years from now and think the Cruising lifestyle would suit us very well.
I'm looking for a way to gain some real world cruising experience and insight so we can find out for sure if we are the future mariners that we think we are.
I've found some Trawler
Schools and a mixed bag of outdated websites, some with horrible reviews
. Being over a thousand miles from any coast doesn't make things easy, but any advice on how to truly experience Cruising would be greatly appreciated.
