Re: Hi

Welcome aboard, Freshly Hooked. Good luck with your plans.

Please consider filling in your profile, so that we can see where you are, approximately, and what your sailing history is. Thanks.

Re: Hi

Thanks for the friendly hello CF

Im in the Barbados airport right now on my way home to northern California. Just finished my asa 114 cat course on a week long learn and cruise in St Vincent and The Grenadines and it was amazing. So I'm feeling pretty lucky right now

Mad up my mind and I'm looking at boats ... just don't feel like sleeping on land anymore.

Re: Hi

That didn't take much! Just realize it's never as easy as it looks... and you are never ever prepared enough... and sh8t happens.... and my favorite.... it's never too late to f*ck up.

Welcome to the madness... there's nothing that compares!

Re: Hi

Hmmm, Barbados now and you are going back to Northern Cal.... for sailing? That will either cure you or hook you for sure! Are you in SF area by chance?
