Hello everybody. Just wanted to say hi. I am new to this site, but looks like it could be a real help and a great place to meet fellow sailors with similar interests.
I have been sailing on and off most of my life both as a boat owner and racing
crewmember. I started my sailing aboard a 26 T-Bird with a friend and raced in the T-Bird fleet for several years. Fun, fast lively boats. Great group of people also. Moved on to crew on a 40' flush deck Cal
sailing out of Tacoma Yacht Club. Had the opportun to learn a lot and get in on some big water
sailing. I have owned some sort of sailing craft for most of my life and have cruised extensively in Puget sound
and BC waters. Boats have included everything from my first, a 17' Tanzer to a Columbia
22', Erickson 27', Blanchard 35' to my current
boat, a 1966 Spencer 42'. I am currently in the process of a complete 18 month rebuild
in preparation for retirement
and embarking on a lifelong dream, bluewater cruising. Don't know if it will be my cup of tea, but like someone said...I would much rather look back on the things I tried and regretted than look back on the things I never tried! So, I hope to meet some great people here and suck on a few of their braincells to help me along my way. Fair Winds! Gerry S/V "MOSHULU"
