Hello from Portland, Maine

Hello all! I new to sailing and am currently using a friends Tanzer 22 this summer to learn. My wife and I are loving it! I'm sailing around Portland, ME and I've learned so far to stay out of the lee of islands!

Our plans are to move south next year, buy a live-a-board, practice another year then take off to Europe.

Mike

I see from your avatar you've been practicing your "knots"

Tanzers are great boats to learn sailing on.

Aloha and Welcome aboard!
Your avatar looks like me in my youth. Ok, maybe I just felt that way. Ha!
Good to have you here and posting. Obviously you have a good sens of humor.
Kind regards,
