Strait of Juan de Fuca, that is.
Thanks to all of you who make this forum such an approchable place for information gathering and answer-seeking! After many years as the "maintenance" half of a partnership
on an Ericson
34, my husband and I are on the prowl for a 35 - 42 footer to take us cruising for one to ?? years. We're looking forward to Vancouver Island, Alaska
, down to Mexico
, and then...who knows? Depends, in part, on how quickly I develop my sailing skills beyond that of an advanced beginner. I'm a mountaineer, a guide, and a search-and-rescue member
, and used to being in charge and having decades of experience to help me with decisions relating to weather
selection, etc. This sailing thing is quite a humbling endeavor, one that I am am enjoying while being constantly aware just how out of my element I am!
