Living the dream

Thanks to the Cruisers Forum.....I am excited to be here because it means I too will be lookin to set sails for destinations other than those close to home.

I joined this forum to help get answers to questions regarding the cruising life and for those unexpected things we never plan to happen. It looks as though this forum has some great advice and I look forward to joining in on some threads.

As for me.....my husband and I own a 40LRC Caliber and keep it off the Chesapeake Bay on the Rappahannock River. We have been sailing together approximately ten years but my husband has about another ten or so years prior to us having met.

We like many are looking forward to retiring and taking advantage of what our boats were meant to provide us with....a retirement sailing experience that is like no other.

Keeping the wind in our sails!

Re: Living the dream

Welcome to CF, Caliber40girl. My wife and I used to sail our Island Packet 380 out of Tabbs Creek, just north of Windmill Point. Great sailing area! Hope you enjoy yourself here.
