Greetings and salutations,
Another has left the seas of lurker anonimity and stepped into the bright forum sun.
A bit about me i am a 30 year working in IT with sailing experience in distant past(optimist, europa class) but as life goes i kinda put the sailing part behind me and haven't had much(read any) experience since. Well that all changed couple of months back when i went with a couple of buddies for a fun sailing weekend.
Ever since that day all my carefully laid(land lubber) plans went down the drain with sailing taking a prominent role. So for now altough i am a couch potato sailor i am educating myself about anything and everything sea&sailing related while sailing on other people's boats as much as i can.
A part of my tentative 5 year plan is one you have all probablly heard a gazillion times by now(budget,boat,freedom, etc...), but since pretty much all the questions that i have at my current
level of expertise are already done to death(bluewater,mono vs. multi,rudder, rigging
etc) i am guessing i will have answers for my questions on this forum for the forseeable time.
Anyway glad to be here .
