Hi there

Hi, Just wanted to say hello and introduce myself to you all. I'm a sailor without a boat. Learned to sail in the Solent while (or rather whilst) living in London for five years. Got me a day skipper certificate from the Royal Yahting Association. Chartered a few times in the BVIs. I'm hoping to learn some new things here and hopefully get to go sailing with some of you.

Richard

Richard,

Wanting to sail leads to sailing. It may not be the most direct course but it's the best way to begin. The secret to sailing is mostly about showing up!

I can assure you that you will learn new things whilst you are here. I do so on a regular basis.

Hi, Richard, and welcome aboard. Where are you located and where do you hope to sail? Some of us may have a spot for a guest.
Regards, Bligh

You're not too far away. We're dry in Rhode Island 'til May, will sail in the area from Long Island Sound to Nantucket for a month, and then shoot up to Maine for four months. You can check out our boat and mis-adventures at Aces at Sea
Regards, Bligh
