I'm new to this site, and to the sailing community. My wife and I have wanted a sailboat for a while, and today I bought a 1978 Columbia
8.7. I'm a total novice
, and I'm sure I will be asking a lot of questions.
I am taking a basic sailing class in 10 days, and plan to take 2 more classes
covering more advanced sailing and coastal cruising before the end of August. I'm going to learn what I can and take on a little more at a time as my confidence and skillset grows.
I'm glad to be here and look forward to learning
