Hi gang,

I'm Renee, aka Moxie Girl. Am American by birth, but living in the UK dreaming of moving to the ocean. I know very little, dare I say virtually nothing about sailing. But that's a trivial hurdle.

Am going to start at a sailing school next year, and if all goes well, in 6 years or so will have my own boat and sailing the seas. MG

Sounds great but 6 years is a lifetime away. You could buy an Alberg30 in the Chesapeake Bay for under $10k on Craiglist and sail it across the Atlantic to England :-)
