Day sailing

Iím looking for someone in north west Indiana that either knows how to sail or wants to learn how to sail with me. I have a melges c scow that I want to sail on cedar lake in cedar lake Indiana. This is a racing sailboat 20í long. Not a boat for 1 man sailing and probably a lot of fun.

Re: Day sailing

I don't live in NW Indiana, but I have family in the area (Munster and Schererville), and it's a suitable drive for me from Peoria, IL. I don't have much experience, but I've taken the US Sailing Basic Keelboat certification and would be comfortable in boats up to at least 32'.

My end goal is to be a full-time cruiser, so I am looking for an opportunity to build time on the water and experience not just the fun part of sailing, but learn to deal with onboard maintenance, issues underway as well. I'm also not afraid to sail in less than ideal weather.

About me: I'm a 42 year-old male. I grew up in the Chicago suburbs and have lived in Peoria for the past 15 years. I am a Veteran and was a diesel mechanic in the service for the better part of my career. Now I work at Caterpillar doing boring computer work.

Would love to talk more and put some miles under the keel if you're interested.Cheers!
