My name is Ryan. I'm a 36 year-old broke college student who is new to sailing. I picked up a 16' Taft Catamaran
off of Craigslist for $150. I'm actually a co-owner. My buddy and I split the cost.
I'm quite lucky to live where I do. There are many lakes in the area. I found this site by googling "Lake Superior Sailing", and found an interesting thread aboout learning
to sail the world on Lake Superior
. I don't plan on sailing the world on my little cat, but the idea of sailing big water
really appeals to me.
I often daydream about sailing up through the great lakes
and out into the Atlantic, hanging a right, then down to Florida
. The idea keeps me motivated to sail my little boat on little water
until I can afford to do more.
I'm looking forward to learning
from you folks, and participating in discussions. I have a feeling that this site is really going to fuel
my newfound obsession.
