So my wife and I are moving to Alaska
in a yea or two and will be taking up sailing so that we can explore the Southeast part of the state. We will both be taking several sailing classes
up there, I might start taking some now here in Oklahoma. I know there are some large lakes nearby and I drove past one and saw a marina there with some sailboats in it.
My questions are these...for now.
1) Please recommend a solid beginner vessel that can be gotten for less than say... 20000$. Something that is forgiving and easy for a single
person to handle.
2) What things would you Definitely want on your beginner vessel to make life a bit easier?
3) As our experience and skills grow we are looking to possibly going up to something like a cal
40. Our thoughts are that the larger craft will be more comfy on longer cruises and we may someday want to tak it to mexico
or even further. Is the Cal
40 a good craft for some with low to moderate experience? If not what craft is that is 30'+ in length and is blue water
Thanx for the replies and help.
