I am a photography
teacher in Glens Falls NY. I've been sailing since I was about 16 years old. We have had a Sunfish, Hobie cats, a javelin and for a long time we sailed a Challenger 24. The Challenger was a great boat for where we sail on Lake George; a beautiful little lake, only 32 miles long but with many islands and undeveloped shoreline. When my oldest started college 12 years ago the university didn't seem to understand that boat money
and mooring fees
should be exempt from the financial aid forms, needless to say they won the argument. So after 12 years of not sailing (3 kids
, 3 colleges!) we have just purchased an '83 Hunter
31, I've always wanted standing headroom! We plan to sail her (Northern Lites) on Lake George for the next four years and then after retirement
take a trip down the coast and over to the Bahamas
. Love this forum and look forward to getting to know folks.
