Couch Sailor

Hello,
I do not yet know how to sail but have been wanting a boat since visiting the Chesapeake Bay 20 years ago. I should be able to cast off within the next 6 years if things go according to plan. Recruiting the spouse will be job #1. I am a Longhorn living in Aggieland so I may try some sailing in Galveston Bay. Any fellow Texans in that area who don't mind noobs?

Jim

Aloha and welcome aboard!
Lots of Texans here but I'm not one of them. I'd recommend you and the spouse sign up for basic sailing classes together just to see if you like it and to get started on the right foot (get your feet wet).

We are trying private charter this summer. Lessons included but optional. Hoping for good initial exposure. No pressure.
