Hello from Florida

Hey guys!

My name is Casey, I live in Central Florida. I'm still pretty new to sailing, but have just completed the ASA 101-104 classes and really had a blast and learned a ton. I'm interested in cruising, either on a charter or owning a boat and am hoping to learn from the vast amount of knowledge on these forums.

I look forward to talking with some of you!

Re: Hello from Florida

Howdy and Welcome Aboard CF Casey!

Florida is a great place for sailing! I wish I was there now!

Here are a few of my favorite tips to pass on to newcomers to this forum:

Take a look at the Cruising WIKI that is found via the tab up on the top menu bar of the forum. It has a LOT of information in it you might find fun, interesting, or helpful.

Looking for Quick Answers?

This is the best and fastest method I have found to the answers I seek here.
Since you are relatively new to the forum, here is my favorite friendly forum search tip: Look at the green menu bar on the forum pages for the drop down "Search" menu. Click on that to drop down a list of search functions. From that drop down menu select the GOOGLE CUSTOM search feature (the second box down) and then enter several different descriptive terms for your topic of interest. That will do a Custom google search of ONLY this site and it is likely to find answers to your questions or results for you. Note: this is different from using the regular forum search box or field. Also note, this is NOT found if you use the CF app. It IS found if you use a web browser such as Safari, etc.

I hope these tips help you and others here.
Ahoy All Sailors! I love traditional sailboats of all kinds (e.g. gaff rigged, schooners, cutters, smacks, woodies, etc.). See my CF Profile "About Me" page for details.

Casey, Welcome and greetings from SW Florida.
My soul is full of longing for the secret of the sea,
and the heart of the great ocean sends a thrilling pulse through me.
