Here to Learn - dream of longer cruise

Right now I spend my time on Hobies and Sunfish, and enjoy it greatly, but dream of extended cruising one day. Still in the planning and saving stages, so I'm just here to learn all that I can as an armchair cruiser

OK, Gord, I'll bite. What's a CLOD?

Oh, and a warm welcome, Coffee. Looking forward to seeing you get involved here on the Forum.

Aloha Coffee,
Welcome aboard! I hope you like it here on the forum. I've been able to solve a lot of sailing's mysteries by asking questions in the discussion board here.
Sunfish are fun boats. I'll be racing one this Sunday if all goes well. Our club has 14 of them that we take out on a few Sundays a year to see how we do against others.
Kind regards,
JohnL
