New to the forum. Have taken ASA 101 103 104.

Hope to get a boat in the near future. This forum has been a big help.

Welcome aboard. We seldom see someone's entire sailing resume listed in the title of the thread, and not the thread itself...
Hope to hear more about which boat you get.
Cheers,
david

Yea not much of a resume. I need some time on the water. Took a week long combined course. Work seems to interfere with my sailing dreams.

What I did after doing the same courses, was to join a club for a year or two. I got to try sailing various boats, and got some real skippering experience, and the cost was reasonable (ie far lower than owning your own boat).

Where are you?

Currently on Lake Hartwell in South Carolina. Should be able to get some experience here as soon as the weather gets good. There are a couple of clubs here. I will give it a go and see what it takes to get in with them

Welcome to the forum. One thing that comes with owning your own boat is the responsibility that comes with making sure your crew is safe at all times. My experience with class trained sailors with little water time is a lack of regard for attentiveness during watches. That's just my experience of course.

Re: New to the forum. Have taken ASA 101 103 104.

Good luck with purchasing your first sailboat. My wife and I have also been taking ASA courses and find then very helpful. We have taken ASA 101, 103, 104, 105, 106 and 114. Instead of buying our own sailboat we have decided to continue using a sailboat club until we have more experience with different boats. Crewing in races has also been valuable experience.
