Hi all you old crusty sailors,
We've got a brand new sailor on board and ready to pester you with question after question.
I'm getting ready to do a solo world-sail over the course of a couple years.
That probably won't be for a while as I want to be absolutely sure that I'm ready for it, plus I'd like to get my business set to where it's okay for me to be missing for a month or three at a time (while at open sea and all).
I'm 24 and run a small internet
business which has let me do a whole lot of travel, which I've absolutely loved. During my last trip to Central America
, I met a sailor in Belize
and fell in love with the idea of sailing. It's always been a desire of mine, but now borders on obsession.
I was planning on taking a sailing course this summer, but two important classes
would be right when I'm planning on a trip to see my new niece/nephew right after it's born.
I've gotten a few books
on the topic of sailing, but so far that's all the experience I have, which is less than fulfilling. I need to meet some sailors in my town (Titusville, FL) and con them into taking me out to sail
Anyway, I look forward to being a part of the community here. I'm really excited about it.
Thanks to everybody who helps me out in the coming months.
I hope to meet you all soon!
