I'm in the very prelimnary planning of switching over from power boating
to sailing. We currently have a jetboat that we enjoy on our local lakes and rivers and are looking at a more fuel
effecient way of continuing our love of the water
My wife and I are considering pocket cruisers. We would like to trailer
it around. In addition to our local fresh waters we would like to sail protected waters in the NY/NJ area. Perhaps an old model Hutchings Com-Pac or a Potter would meet our needs...
Before making any purchaces I've decided to take the ASA
101 coarse to get a basic understanding of sailing before making any decisions. I need to consider and determine what type of physical abilities are needed to sail. Although I lead an active life, my stregnth is somewhat limited due to a heart disability.
I'm looking forward to being a member
of the community. If anyone out there has similar disabilities and sails
I'd like to hear from them.
