I am new to this, but love the site. Anything that keeps information comming in about cruising or boat talk gets me going. I don't even have a sailboat of my own yet. Life is good and I look forward to talking story.
Aloha and welcome aboard!
Good to have you here on the forum. Had any sailing classes yet? Coast Guard Auxiliary offers a fine boating course for classroom time and a basic sailing course would get you on the water.
I've sailed in to Lahaina a couple times many years ago and had a wonderful time there.
