Post Aloha from Oahu !

Hey there, folks. I'm Tom.

Last fall, a buddy and I canoed down the Mississippi River. On the way, we met some folks who lived out on the river, and even met a few making the same trip we were. It seemed like a heck of a life style. There is a lot of freedom in having a portable home.

I took lessons on sailing Sunchasers when I was in grade school, but that feels like a hundred years ago now. I also went out a couple times this summer on a boat that wasn't much bigger. I reckon that now I'm in Hawaii, it might be a swell time to learn on something a smidge larger. I'm here until mid-October, so if you'll be on Oahu, please feel free to let me know!

Come October, I'm headed to NYC, where I'll be all winter. I'm keen to gain some experience there too, if at all possible.

This really seems like a great site. I'm sure I'll be learning a lot.

Re: Aloha from Oahu!

Aloha and welcome aboard!
There are a few Oahu sailors on this forum. I'm on the Big Island so can't help with your sailing venture.
You can always hop a ride on Friday afternoons at the Ala Wai Yacht Harbor. Just wander the docks and see if anyone needs crew.
Good to have you here.
kind regards,

Seriously, just wander down to the YC and folks will say come aboard? That would be nice.

Re: Aloha from Oahu !

Well, it helps to have a small cooler full of beer too but, yes, folks do need crew.
kind regards,
