pirate Hello, Newbie from Bradenton, Florida

I just recently found this forum, and I'm enjoying exploring it.

I grew up on a 38` Elco Cabin Cruiser in Titusville, Florida. My family spent many hours on the water with friends, Titusville Yacht Club, and as members of Coast Guard Aux. Flotilla 49.

I've rediscovered my love of sailing after being away for many many years. I'm taking classes on sailing and reading as many books on the subject as possible. My 'plan' is to be living aboard my own sailboat within the year.

Looking forward to meeting other sailors, and hopefully, crewing on some trips.

Whiipper

I'm in the same boat, hoping to find a sailboat myself this year. Best of luck with the search and welcome!
