I've been following the sailing community for a long time. My father spent 21+ years as a merchant marine
and I grew up in the coast of southern Sweden
It was always my fathers dream to own a sail boat. He recently beat two forms of cancer and I decided now was the time to full fill my dads dreams.
I had done a lot of research
and came across a 27ft Jeanneaufantasia.
Today I put down a deposit and made a offer on it. It feels a little crazy to buy a boat with NO experience what so ever but I owed it to my father to see him smile again.
I currently live in Seattle
and the boat will be moored on Lake Union. I have been looking into some sail classes
but all seem full or over for the season.
What would your recommendations be?
