I am looking to head
out on an a very extended, slow, and adventure filled RTW sail in a few+ years time, and am here to learn from people who know a whole lot more than I do.
I grew up deep sea fishing
on small home made fiberglass
boats in the Sea of Cortez
, and thus have spent a lot of time at sea, but only on a sailboat once. We did raise the sails
. I have also backpacked/hitchhiked/train hopped/ferried across North America and Northern Europe(when I wore a younger man's clothes). I have always wanted to sail, and at present that deep desire is the extent of my qualifications.
I am genuinely fascinated by the world of sailing, boat maintenance
, and general seamanship. I want to learn it all, inside and out. Glad to be here.
