Best holiday wishes to all you sailors. I'd like to start off saying that if it wasn't for this forum, I would have never been introduced to the world of sailing. I met Duane aka Novelman through this forum about 10 years ago who introduced me to sailing. I also met and sailed with Frank who's still active on this forum. We've been friends ever since. I remember the joy I felt preparing and taking the boat
out of the marina and as the day drew to a close, I was exhausted but still in a good way. You don't have to hear this from me, but man are you guys a tough bunch!
The constant back and forth rocking motion of the sea, the wind
, sea spray, sickness and fear of the boom swinging across and hitting me in the head
and knocking me out of the boat
is real, but is easily outweighed by the feeling of freedom, excitement and adventure I feel when sailing.
Unfortunately, Duane is no longer active on this forum or is sailing any longer. I however, am still young and my last sailing adventure was a long time ago with Frank and I miss sailing terribly. I know I should get my own sailboat, but that probably wont happen until my kids
I live in LA and I'd love to sail with you.
I have some sailing experience and I'm looking for sailing buddies.
I am dependable, fit, I take initiative and follow directions well. Contact me. Thanks.
