Hello Sailors

I have a 1987 - 322 O'Day
I have enjoyed reading the post questions and answers. I purchase this boat for my husband last year and sadly he passed away and never made the maiden voyage. I am slowly learning how to sail my boat. It has been 30* years that I sailed. Any advice I would gladly accept.
Sailing has given me peace and healing.
Sincerly hoping to learn more.
Linda

Hi Linda,
Welcome to the Forum. So sorry to hear about your husband, but happy you've re-found sailing. I would suggest taking a few introductory sailing courses to fast track you. ASA has good ones. Fair winds and following seas.

Re: Hello Sailors

Hi, Linda,

Welcome Aboard CF, and good on you. Sorry for your loss. You will always have the memories of all the good times; they will come to predominate.

I hope you will find some sailing friends along the way to share all the fun stuff with.

And, sure, if you think your skills are lacking, either ask out right for help or do classes, where and as needed, nothing wrong with that.

If you particularly enjoy singlehanding, there are a few women here who are often singlehanders, SailorChic34, and gamayun, both in the San Francisco Bay area. "zeehag", in Mexico, is skipper of her own boat, as well, although she takes crew for passages, and has some stories to tell, too. Apologies if I've left out someone.

Should you have specific questions, please feel free to ask.

Ann
