I did not grow up on boats, nor was I taught by anyone how to sail - nor have I been encouraged in anyway - Yet somehow I love the water
and I've always been drawn to the ocean. I'm in the process of buying
my own boat out here in beautiful Vancouver, BC. My father tells me I come from a long line of sea captains - 7 brothers, to be exact, in Nova Scotia
who sailed tall ships about 150 hundred years ago. My grandfather was a sailor, but not my Dad. For whatever the reason, I must be on the water
and without being brought up in it or taught how to do things properly without getting killed - I find myself searching out as much info as I can - and then I found this wonderful forum!
We all start somewhere I suppose
Been sailing dingies for a few years now and I'm ready to move up so I can start taking my family
