New here from Southern California

Just found this forum from a simple web search. I've always been interested in sailing ever since I was 12. Never have owned a boat before though. My biggest fantasy as a kid was to sail around the world.

Same dream and trying to make it happen with the help of the knoledgable people here.
Fair Winds,


Between us there was, as I have already said somewhere, the bond of the sea. Besides holding our hearts together through long periods of separation, it had the effect of making us tolerant of each other's yarns -- and even convictions. Heart of Darkness

Aloha Waters,
I sailed with a club for about 7 years before ever buying a boat. It was time well spent and not too expensive.
Hope you can find a good way to get back out on the water.
Kind Regards,
