Hello from Socal . . .

Hey friends, I am new to sailing. I took lessons and passed my 101 in 2007. Unfortunatley, it has been 3 years since I have been on the water. I plan on buying my own boat in 2112, but until then I would love to day sail with other sailers and either charter boats together or allow me to refresh my skills on your boat. I am a 48 year old, fit male. I waterski ferequently and bodysurf every weekend. I am dying to get back on the ocean, under sail and get ready for when I puchase my own boat.

....If God is the Father and the Earth my Mother, then The Ocean is my big brother. Stable, strong, quietly listening as I bear my troubles, or celebrate my joys, but ready to set me straight, if I think too big of myself or get too reckless.

Well said, she is the great equalizer, never cares if you are rich or poor, good or bad, judges us all equally.
