Hello from Florida!

Jacksonville FL here with a desire to get into sailing. I have been researching online and trying to absorb what I can especially YouTube videos. Visited this forum several times and decided to join. Looking maybe to crew initially since I'm without a vessel and mostly do daysailing, and maybe branch into cruising and racing at some future point. Considering joining a local yacht club as well. Currently in process of taking online boating course. Will want to purchase a vessel sometime next year and I'm sure this forum will be of great assistance in all aspects.

Re: Hello from Florida!

Aloha and welcome aboard!
Good to have you here and you are doing some great research. Try to get a hands on basic sailing course done before you buy. It'll let you know whether you really like sailing or not.
kind regards,
