Hello from the Sunny Beaches of Canada

Ahoy there,
I'm a 21 year old from British Columbia. I'v been poking around these forums looking for incite and people doing ocean crossing. I'v done a lot of club racing, and this summer sailed all around the gulf islands (Which was beautiful and I don't know why I never did it before) But now I'm looking to start a big adventure on a different continent, and 14 hours on a air plane doesn't sound nearly as fun as a month on a boat!
Cheers Leum

Re: Hello from the sunny beaches of Canada

Greetings and welcome to the CF, Leum.

This is a better place to come to gain insight, than it is to incite.

Re: Hello from the Sunny Beaches of Canada

I don't know Gord, any time the mono versus multi debate comes up, many of the posts are more incite-ful than insightful.

Anyway, as Gord said, greetings and welcome aboard Leum!
