I'm new to this forum but have been sailing on and off for about 20 years, usually nothing bigger than a C15.
The boat bug bit me hard again after I moved from Atlanta to New Orleans
and I have just sold my antique fishing
skiff (w/ antique motor) and will be buying
(this weekend) a very well maintained 1980 O'Day 22 for day sailing
on Lake Pontchartrain and occasionally coastal cruising in the Northern Gulf of Mexico
I haven't sailed a boat that size since 1993 but imagine it will come back quickly (plus I am doing a check ride with a colleague who is active in the local keelboat racing
Anyone have any perspective on good 2-4 day cruising trips in the area?
