Hi (soon to be) fellow sailors,
I am a 6'6" man from Chicago who has just been bitten by the sailing bug. I was on my friends boat a few years ago, but the concept
did grip me until recently. Anyway, I'm anxious to start learning
all I can. I live just outside the Loop and would love to meet some Captains any of the Chicago harbors who wouldn't mind showing me the ropes (literally). I'm married so I can bring my wife if yours will be in attendance.
I'm serious about this. Naturally my long term goal is to get my own boat, so I want to learn all I can to take the necessary exams to be come a certified Captain
. So look me up. As I stated I'm 6'6", so it would help if your boat had appropriate headroom
below decks but that's not a deal breaker.
See ya at the harbor.
