Hi everyone, my name's Frank...
I grew up sailing dinghies... raced 470s, Lasers, and FJs in college... chartered a number of times...florida... BVI... Puerto Rico
... Now I'm up to 5 weeks vacation
each year and am using my 24' S2 more and more...
My wife Maureen enjoys sailing. She joins all my trips. (But i do need to keep the cruising bug a secret - she isn't yet convinced a live on the water
is for her.) I read a nice blog once by a retired couple cruising their Valiant 40. They would sail for 6 months, then put the boat in dry dock
for 6 months wherever they happened to be while they did something else. This sounded about ideal to me.
I hope to pick up crew opportunities over the next 5 years while I cruise
to an early retirement
cheers from Cincy,
Frank (& Maureen).
