Guess I should get around to making one of these threads too....
Marty here, very new to the sailing world enjoying the forum here. Lots a great info, so many questions!
Took a few sailing classes
last summer (14ft community class then ASA
101) and have a ASA
class scheduled in the BVI for this March. So looking forward to getting on a *big* boat! Got scuba
certified so going to sneak a little of that in while there, first time in the tropics for me.
Looking to buy a boat, can't image next summer going by w/o a boat. Hard and expansive getting out on the water
when you don't know anyone into sailing. Grew up on the lakes, very comfortable around the smaller power boats but really looking forward to the trip aspect of cruising. For some reason racing
has little to no appeal to me.
Reading more books
on sailing than I ever thought I would. Taking a meteorology class next semester in a local community college, working towards gaining a complete understanding of the cruising ways/long passage
making being the goal ultimately perhaps.
about sums me up pretty good.
