I'm new to the board and extremly new to the sport. In fact haven't even attended my first basic sailing class yet. Will be later in the month of Dec; I hope.
I've been a power boater most of my life. Wife and I would like to retire sailing the islands. Power boating
the islands seems out of reach and not nearly as peacefull.
Plan is to attend basic, do a little lake sailing, go on a week long course for bareboat certification
. Spend a couple years coastal sailing; Florida
mostly. If still active in the sport, buy the boat.
Hope to make some friends to get as much sail time as possible. Who know's maybe I'm too old to start this, but gona give it the best I got.
