Thanks for a Great Forum !

I have enjoyed reading posts on these forums for a while now and have found it a great resource already. I work in Iraq but have moved to Costa Rica and dream of having a modest cruiser there in the next year or so. I have traveled much of the world but am a novice sailor. I hope that the Golfo Dulce and neighboring Pacific will be a good place to learn. Thanks for providing this great community and resources...
Kevin

Hi Kevin, welcome to the forum, take care out there if you haven't already left Iraq.

Welcome to the site, Icedog Here's hoping you get your plans under way as soon as possible. The world's only going to get smaller as time goes by, and I think most of us like exploring it for its size and diversity.

Hope you find many answers here, and even more out there

Thanks again everyone for the welcome and for the pool of knowledge which never ceases to amaze me. I am looking forward to spending three weeks in Costa Rica starting in late January and to doing some sailing while I am there
