Hello from Wisconsin

Hello fellow sailors. I started sailing in Lake Michigan a few years ago, and became addicted. Last year I joined the University of Wisconsin sailing club, Hoofers, and have worked my way through dinghies, J boats, and some 30' cruisers. I have sailed mostly in Lake Michigan and Lake Mendota, but I am itching to sail in the ocean.

I have been reading this forum for several months, and am impressed by the wealth of knowledge available here. I'm sure that many of my questions will be answered by fellow sailors in this forum. I look forward to talking to some of you very soon.

Good sailing, and I'll see you on the water!

Re: Hello from Wisconsin

Welcome to the forum surfnsail77.
A bit off topic, but have you ever done the fly-in at Oshkosh?
We went last year and had a blast.
