Aloha from Hawaii

Aloha folks,

How is everyone doing today? Just found this forum while doing some research and thought this was a good place to join up and get some knowledge.

A little about me and my sailing history. I pretty much grew up sailing on the Chesapeake with my dad. He had many boats over the years an 18 footer, 25 Cal and then a 30 ft (CAL also I believe). Every year my dad, grandfather and myself would rent a boat on the Bay and take her out for our annual weekend cruise. I have gone through the Annapolis sailing school week long course years ago.

Haven't had much time to sail since then. I did about 9yrs in the Navy and since I got out I have had much time with kids and all.

But i'm looking to getting back into sailing as I really miss the peace and quiet it has to offer. A potential job offer may have me moving back closer to the bay and if so I will definitly be picking up a sailboat.

Look foward to some great tips, discussion and making new sailing buddies.
