Awww, I'm glad to see your words again!
I'm in the process of going to look at the 22' Bristol this week/end and hopefully going to find myself w/ sailing lessons
soonish. Also headed to the Annapolis Boat Show
in Oct. SO EXCITED!
I know this is a silly comparison, but we have a Hobie Mirage Revolution at the beach house in FL on the Gulf Coast
....and I sail it more than anything else. It's got a mast
you insert and hoist one sail that you control with a single
line...but OMG, it's the best fun. The first time I caught wind
in that sail and went flying across the water
w/o having to peddle, I was ecstatic. Best feeling ever...
Such great little boats for a myriad of uses...
