Hello, I am new today but have been reading around this site for a few weeks.
I am 26 years old and just recently, in the past couple months, began being more and more interested in a lifestyle away from the 9-5 grind and monotony that comes with it. It has been 12 years sense being on the water
on a yacht my great grandfather stored in Orange Beach down in the gulf where he took the fam out on deep sea fishing
trips. I enjoyed the boat and the sea much more then the fishing
I have started to study the books
of sailing and researching ways to make this new dream manifest into reality in a few years. I am not afraid of work and understand a lot of it is in my future, but also understand that the work needed gives me the experience needed to grow as a person and as a sailor.
Anyways, thought I would finally post and introduce myself and become more active in conversation around this site and create a means of learning
from you all.
