Hello from Texarkana

Hello, and thanks to Cruisers and Sailing Forums for such a great resource to discuss and learn about sailing and living on the water. I have a long way to go before I unhook from land. I have never sailed,never owned a boat,just worked all my life and now is my time to realize a dream and have fun. Any and all suggestions are greatly appreciated..Thanks

Welcome to CF, RELEASEME. Stop working and start boating. Sounds like a good plan to me!

Taking the first 3 ASA courses might be a good start. They are available down in the Clear Lake (Galveston Bay) area. If you wanted to get a day sailor to learn the basics, Cross Lake (Shreveport) or Lake of the Pines (NE Texas) are not bad sailing lakes.

Aloha and Welcome aboard!
Well, I know sailing sounds romantic but there is quite a bit of work on boats too. It just seems like a lot more fun.
regards,
