Greetings from Florida

My name is Julie and I'm in my mid 20s. I have been around the ocean and boating pretty much my whole life but I'm relatively new to sailing. I stayed on my cousins sailboat in Panama for 2 weeks and fell in love. (Who wouldn't?!) I am an adventure seeker and I am ready to start my adventures. I've waited long enough! I am currently in the process of learning to sail myself, but I think that the best way to learn is to do it. Since I cannot afford a boat on my own, I would love to join a crew and work my way through my adventures. I also think this forum is great. I look forward to meeting fellow adventure seekers like myself.

Welcome again!

Never hurts one bit to post a few different ways... Glad ya got the bug, and you're sure to get a dose of the sea soon...
In the harsh marine environment, something is always in need of repair...

Mai Tai's fix everything...

Aloha and welcome aboard!
If you can, take a basic sailing course. If you can't then jump on a boat and crew. There are a bunch of books in the library if you are willing to read.
