A quick Hello from a new guy on the site. I saw this site mentioned on Sailnet and thought I would check it out. As I don't have enough time to make all of the mistakes
on my own, I figure I can try to learn from the experience of you all.
Hannah Lee is my first keeled boat, having learned to sail on E scows and Hobie Cats. I also spent about 20 years windsurfing before buying
a 78 C&C
29. (It is so different sailing and not getting wet ,well, mostly anyway.) Last year, our first full year of ownership
, I taught my wife the basics of sailing and she is more comfortable each outing. I do have to realize that she isn't as aggressive a sailor as I. When I forget, we both suffer. But she is getting there.
We sail mostly in the Navesink river in NJ, which I find a bit confining. But when the tides are right we motor
out to Sandy Hook Bay. Eventually we want to venture up to NYC
and Long Island sound
and other coastal stuff.
Nuff said for now.
