Hello All, We are Future Retiree Cruisers

Hi, my husband Bret and I (Tara) are researching, prepping and planning our retirement future. We are divers and have sailed a small boat around the Gulf Coast area for years. We decided that sailing had to be our retirement plan.

We are excited to read all of the information on here as we plan towards the goal.

No boat yet so we'll just have to continue with the bitsy day sail boat till then.

Hi, there, Blue Honey, and welcome aboard to you and Bret. Enjoy your time here.

Having spent a lot of time on a day sailer will stand you in good stead with your eventual choices.

Hey Bret & Tara,

Welcome and I hope you will like it here.

I am sure you will love retiring, cruising and watching green flashes with us.

Have fun reading, posting, outfitting and sailing the dream!
