Newbies in NJ


We are Jessi and Don. We have a dream of eventually living on a sail boat full time. While Don knows how to sail, hs has no formal training (ASA). I have no sailing experience at all, but love to be out on (and in) the water. On the 18th we will be attending an ASA sanctioned class -Basic Keelboat Sailing.

Our dream is to aquire the boat in 7 to 10 years. For now we are hoping to learn all we can, and crew for others on our days off.
