Brand New to Sailing

So new, in fact, that I've never sailed before, but it's something I want to learn, so I hope that I will be able to learn as much as I can from this community. Google, youtube, and Kindle Unlimited have certainly helped me learn much of what I can here on land.

As for me, I'm currently in the process of moving to Port St Lucie, Fl with my wife and 5 kids (yes, it's just as crazy as it sounds), to be nearer to family, and, of course, the ocean. There aren't too many opportunities here in Fayetteville, NC.

I look forward to interacting with you.

Re: Brand New to Sailing

Hi, Dave,

Welcome aboard. Five kids, huh? Maybe the eldest would like to have a dinghy to sail after you figure out how to do it? Bear in mind, I have seen 3 yr old Solomon Islander kids out in their own tiny canoes, quite adept at handling them, too.


Who scorns the calm has forgotten the storm.
