I've just joined the wonderful world of sailing as of last weekend. I've always wanted a sailboat, but I have never sailed before, and just recently purchased on up in Tilghman Island Maryland, I live in Elizabeth City NC.

I have a lot to learn about sailing and what little bit I did last weekend was exciting up until I let my girlfriend steer while I went below and she thought it was a great idea to steer in the directly into the wind, that caused some minor problems then the Ches Bay decided to get nasty and I had the pleasure of traveling to solomons in some good size swell but the boat did just fine.

I'm looking forward to really learning how to sail and having a great time doing it.
