Hello from San Diego

Hi folks,

Just moved to San Diego, California after living in SF bay area and learned to sail in the BVI. Looking to meet fellow sailing enthusiasts in San Diego. May eventually buy if the deal is right.

Re: Hello from San Diego

Howdy and Welcome Aboard CF!

I hope you enjoy your time on the forum.

Since you are new to this forum, let me mention a few things you might miss but that could help you more enjoy your time here:

There is an amazing amount of shared knowledge found in the thousands of threads on this forum. If one has a common question, the answers are usually there, often with different possible solutions. The trick is finding those threads and answers as they can be "lost" in the many threads, which are often not titled well.

Here are my favorite Tips for newcomers to this forum:

There are also some "social groups" within the forum that are more focused on special interests.

Here are a couple you might find interesting:
Cruisers & Sailing Forums - All Groups

Pacific Coast Sailors Group (74 members)
Cruisers & Sailing Forums - Pacific Coast Sailors
______________

WIKI
Take a look at the Cruising WIKI that is found via the tab up on the top menu bar of the forum. It has a LOT of information in it you might find fun, interesting, or helpful.
____________

Looking for Quick Answers?

This is the best and fastest method I have found to the answers I seek here.
Since you are relatively new to the forum, here is my favorite friendly forum search tip: Look at the menu bar on the forum pages for the drop down "Search" menu. Click on that to drop down a list of search functions. From that drop down menu select the GOOGLE CUSTOM search feature (the second box down) and then enter several different descriptive or key terms for your topic of interest. That will do a Custom google search of ONLY this site and it is likely to find answers to your questions or results for you. Note: this is VERY different from using the regular forum search box or field (which I never use because of poor search results). Also note, this is NOT found if you use the CF mobile app. It IS found if you use a web browser such as Safari, IE, Firefox, etc.

Note: The ordinary "search" field on this forum has yielded less helpful results for me when I perform searches. That is why I prefer and suggest the use of the alternative "Google Custom Search" instead. I see a very clear and big difference and find the Google Custom Search much easier for scanning (with my eyes) threads for relevant comments and information.

I am confident if you spend some time trying different search terms (key words) using this method, you will find much advice and many tips.

You should advertise as crew in the local craigslist, and introduce yourself around the Marina offices, brokerages, chandleries, and sail lofts on Shelter Island as looking for crewing opportunities. Make a card you can hand out that they can pass on.

Also, join one of the sail clubs like Harbor Sailboats so you can rent a boat when you feel like it. Considerably cheaper than ownership for occasional sailors and it gives you the opportunity to get a feel for what's right for you before you buy.

Good luck!
