Just discovered this site a couple of days ago and just registered. No, not a sailor yet, but currently trying to breath life into the dream (as the name implies). Gonna start small with a dinghy
, maybe crew at local sailing club, then work my way up. Definitely want to cruise
Just went into business for myself a couple of years ago and the business is gaining traction, so the dream may very well become a reality sooner than later. I have fished for years and sport fish
out of Homosassa FL every year. I have extensive power boating
experience in all types of weather
and vessels. Have boated through freezing ice storms while waterfowl hunting, and recently got caught in a little Alberto action while fishing
a recent cobia tournament in Florida
. The world of boating
is definitely not new, but sail boating has ALWAYS appealed to me and I have yet to experience .
Have surfed many different sites and am in the "accumulating knowledge" phase. Birthday coming up so lots of "how to sail" type books
on the list. Hope you will forgive any stupid questions I may ask, but I do believe the only stupid question is the one that is never asked. I look forward to using this site and the knowledge of you experienced cruisers/sailors in my introduction
and education about sailboats and sailing.
Thanks in advance.
