Re: Hello from Lake Norman NC

Now that you have a boat I think you'll have a fair chance. Not so easy getting a first mate without the boat. If you really enjoy sailing then you'll be likely to attact others that do too. A friendly face with a happy expresion adds a lot to your chances too.

Welcome to CF. We have a fair number of lake sailors here too. Sorry but all my sisters are married.
