Hi from Montana - Big Sky country, land of big, beautiful mountains, lots of powder and verrrry long winters. Too long to take anymore. I'm even losing my enthusiasm for skiing.
I've lived here for 20 years and now that I'm divorced and the kids
are flying out of the nest, I'm ready for a change.
I'm writing to introduce myself to the sailing community and asking for suggestions on great places to live (besides a sailboat). Also, I might be interested in a crewing
position starting after September.
I grew up doing a lot of sailing with my Dad in Pennsylvania, so I have the rudimentary skills down, although probably a bit rusty. I lived in San Diego
for 5 years (why was it that I left?, Oh yeah, too many people). Did a lot of sea kayaking there and a little sailing with friends.
I recently returned from vacation
(Glover's Reef,lots of kayaking) and it made me realize that I want to make a change in residence. I want to be near the water
and in a tropical, semi-tropical or temperate climate.
I also would like to get back into sailing. I've been thinking about going to a good sailing school
to refresh and add to my sailing skills. I like the Puget Sound
, San Juan Islands
area in Washington
state, but I'm concerned about too much gray and drizzle.
I love Hawaii
, New Zealand
and Costa Rica
. Would maybe consider Florida
, but it's so flat _____________.
I love to hear from sailors (who tend to be really nice people) with your comments and suggestions for refreshing and/or reinventing a great, new life in a great new location.
