Hello from MN

Hello from Minnesota
Actually my current home as we tend to move around, I've cought the sailing bug and can't seem to shake it. I've done some reading on here and learnt a lot already. I'll be looking to gain some experience as I think I'm dangerously book smart on this subject. I'm a laser sailer looking to transition into live aboard and cruising. Thanks for all the help so far. Regards Steven

Re: Hello from MN

Welcome Steven. The sailing season in Minnesota can be short but the option of exploring lakes and rivers is endless. The big lakes near the twin cities have lots of boating activity. The more remote lakes may have only a few fishing boats and few other sailors. Either way it can be beautiful. I haven't lived there for several decades now as I prefer living where the water never gets hard enough to drive on. Your Laser gives you great ease of travel to any lake you wish to explore. Enjoy the sailing.

By the way, have you discovered Good Old Boat magazine. It is published there in MN.

Welcome aboard Steven UK.

Maybe a trailer-sailer would make a good transition boat for you?

Enjoy,

Ann
