Hope I'm doing this right, if not, lo siento mucho! So I am just getting into sailing, hoping one day to own a blue water
capable cruiser to live aboard that I might literally, one day, sail off into the sunset. Actually, given where I live, I may have to sail off into the sunrise! Haha! I am currently living in a gulf-coast state, but am basically retired early, and am thinking about moving either to the Pacific Northwest
or New England
. Trying to decide which.
I'm leaning towards the East coast
because of where that'll let me sail to and from, Caribbean
in one direction, Europe
in the other.
On my to-do list are the following:
save up for and buy a boat
ditch all my cheap
, came-in-a-box furniture
learn to sail
Figure out what sailboat best suits my needs and which I can afford (probably monohull single
Buy boat and move aboard
Not necessarily in that exact order.
There's little else to say about myself, so I'll end with this: I am reading a book on how to sail, (a sailing manual,) and blogs about sailing like Bumfuzzle. (Actually read the book and am intermittently following their further adventures on their site.)
Whatever I do will probably end up single
handing ultimately. May try singlehanded circumnavigation
, if I ever feel sufficiently adventurous.
Thanks for reading!
