Glad to be aboard!

Thanks for the opportunity to join the Cruisers' Forum. This time of year in Colorado, we're reduced to reading and talking about sailing and planning warm-water voyages while the boat rests under it's winter blanket.

I started 20 years ago with a Gloucester 19, later co-owning a Macgregor 26 and now a ComPac Suncat. It's a great boat for trailer sailing and I'm learning (again) how to sail a gaff-rigged boat. I also enjoy "big-boat" sailing whenever a bare-boat charter can be organized with friends.

I look forward to taking part in other discussion threads on the site.

Re: Glad to be aboard!

Looks like a neat little rig. I'll bet it has more room than our club's West Wight Potter 19.
Oops, after looking at the photos I guess it doesn't.
kind regards,
