Hello all, Marc in northern upstate NY here

Hello all,
I've sailed a little in my youth, and have always read and imagined a life at sea. Last summer after sailing my friends sunfish, I found an O'day Daysailer 17 for $350. I sailed it a bunch until I sold it to a friend so I could purchase a Victoria 18. She is in excellent shape and ready to go as soon as the ice melts. Then I will be exploring Lake Champlain!
I've been coming to this site and reading posts awhile and have learned very much. Thanks to everyone involved.

Welcome to the forum

The plan is to buy a boat on Lake Champlain and sail it there this summer.
Hope to see you there!
