New member saying hello

Hello, new to the forum and sailing. Looking forward to learning "the ropes" while the snow falls. I have power boat experience, and I sailed a small catamaran in Mexico once. I've recently aquired a Newport 17 with which I hope to learn the art of sailing.

I can't wait for spring!

Welcome new guys--it is especially nice to welcome a Newport owner. A flatscreen on the bulkhead takes care of my football jones. Welcome again.
