I'm a 65 male whose wife of 47 years recently passed. So I imagine I will be going through this new experience alone. I plan on learning
to sail this summer. Presently I spend 6 months each in Florida
and then Vermont, on Lake Champlain in Vermont. At the present time my goal is be able to purchase
a sailboat that will allow me to sail for the winter months in the Keys, Bahamas
and Turks & Calcos Islands.
plan is to start my education on sailing by taking courses at a Lake Champlain, VT sailing school
and then this coming winter continue with another course in the keys. Since I am totaly unfamiliar with the various ways I can achieve this goal, I am completely open to suggestions.
Also suggestions as to how what type of expenses I will incur and a $ range of these expenses. Dumping fees
, sailboat upkeep cost, mooring fees
, etc etc. I am not really into or expect to live in a sailboat which is moored to a dock
As everyone might guess I have many, many questions; however, the first and foremost is what is the best way to gain the necessary experience?
thanks for your help
