Hi There! John from Florida
here. Been sailing for a few years now. 22 footer for the past year, dinghies before that. It's the only thing I've kept interest in my whole life. Finally got out this past Fri. for the first time in 4 months or so. Got on the water
at 11am and didn't drop the sails
til 2am - got up at 8am and went for a couple more hours. Started to get tired and figured I better save some strength for crankin her up the trailer. Noticed my registration's about to expire and I still haven't named the boat. Pretty much got it narrowed down to "Broke on the Water" or "Midnight Cruiser" since I'm a poe fokker and love sailing into the wee hours. Going up to the "forgotten coast" aka Apalachicola in the pan handle in early May. Wife's Uncle rents a condo up there on St Geoge Island and She hasn't seen him in a few years. It'll be my first real sail in salt water
. Normally sail in a lake about 5 miles across. Been working on learning
and just picked up roller furler
for genny. Just have to keep track of tides and currents. Something I'm not used to. Has anybody else sailed in Apalachicola Bay area? Searched and found a post from someone in that area that's been exploring it for a few years. They haven't posted in a while. I'll have to see if I can get in touch with them.
It will be nice to talk to all of you, butanyways
