Hello CF! I kinda feel silly joining a cruising forum considering I have zero experience with boats. But, I have a love for the ocean that I've been running from for over 20 years. At this moment in my life I'm "casting the bow lines" and going for my dream. I want to learn to sail. I want to be a boat owner. Eventually, I want to be a world cruiser.
I've been reading and reading and reading anything/everything I can get my hands on about sailing/boats/cruising. It's overwhelming, heck I can't even tell what language I'm reading half the time (feel like I need a Nautical Rosetta Stone tutorial!) but I'm still beyond determined.
I live in Columbus, GA. There is a lake, but the only boating
is bass fishing
and Seadoo's. There isn't even a marina to talk to anyone. My fiance & I have decided to move to Pensacola
within the next year in order to better fullfill our sailing dream.
So thanks again for having me and for providing such a wealth of information for a newbie like me!
