Good Day everyone. Another landlubber on deck
I am 50+, used to sail on big ships as an engineer
, even graduated from a Maritime Academy. When I got married, abandoned everything, but now that retirement
is approaching, I can feel the lure of the Sea getting to me again. I plan this year to get a couple of sailing lessons
, buy myself a cheap
second-hand day/pocket sailor and sail away.
I live in the DC area, so here is my plan. First get my feet wet on the Potomac
, then go up and down the Bay, then go out and up the coast to NY. At that time, maybe get a bigger boat and do the caribbean
, and ultimately (maybe) the Atlantic.
I know it is a very optimistic plan, but, this is how I see my next 5-6-8 years. I will keep you guys posted.
