Newbie from Cincinnati


I am about three years from retirement. My wife and I have decided (if all goes well...) to start cruising on a catamaran after retirement. Last year we have bought a small trailer sailboat (1981 Gale Force, Wild Wind 20 (Rinker 20)) and took a two day sailing course from our local Strictly Sailing outfit. We hope to practice and get better at sailing. I have been reading this forum for a year now and just got the courage to write first time. Looking forward to learning from all the experienced sailors in this forum.
