Re: im officially a sailor!

Congratulations.

You know of course that now you're certified you are required to buy a bigger boat.

Re: im officially a sailor!

Hi Dan, as a fellow Lake Superior sailor, let me extend a big congrats. I took my first keel boat sailing/cruising course about 10 years ago, and I have barely begun to learn. Sailing is like chess. It's easy to learn how to play, but it takes a lifetime to become a master. Enjoy the journey.

... and point your bow north. The Canadian shores of Lake Superior offers some of the best wilderness cruising in the world.
