New guy checking in
Been lurking for a while now. I am very new to sailing but I spend hours reading about it every week and finally scheduled an ASA
101 class to experience it and figure out if it is right for me which I am 99% sure it is.
I am the type of person who believes in researching before jumping into something so I figured I would get through at least ASA
103 before jumping into the purchase
of a boat. I do have my eye on the Gemini 105
cats, probably an early '00 - '03 as I find them to have certain characteristics that appeal to me such as the interior
space, flatness of travel and price
I am looking forward to learning
more about sailing and in time, contributing to the forum when I become more aware and refined in the art of sailing.
I am 30 years old, a website designer
and forum administrator by trade
and looking to "automate" my business in the next year or 2 and pursue the dream of cruising the Bahamas
for the winter months and eventually become proficient enough to circumnavigate. I have had many adventures in life to include traveling the world, fighting in the war, living in several countries over the course of 4 years, living....loving....and losing.
Thank you for your time and look forward to learning
more and more about the art of sailing.
