Getting Back into it

Hi, I'm Michael. Recently retired, but I still have my Sunfish that I started off with 46 years ago. I've heard it said that if you can sail a sunfish, you can sail anything. That's yet to be seen. We had a Catalina 22 while the kids were younger, and I've toyed with our Bristol 29.9 for the past 8 years. But, the Bristol has been tied to the dock since 2008. It's time to venture, and this forum is my first re-entry back into the sailing community. Thank you in advance for what I anticipate will be good information and welcomed encouragement.

Re: Getting back into it

Welcome to the forum and back to sailing.
I think the exception to the "after that you can sail anything" may be wind surfers...that's different!
