Greetings! I am pretty new to the world of sailing, only been doing it for about a year but I've had a love of the ocean for my entire life.
A quick story about how I got into sailing. The wife and I needed to escape the cold New England
winter in Feb. 2013 so we booked a quick trip to Tortola. I instantly fell in love with the BVI
. While there I met many sailors and spent many hours cruising between Tortola, Jost and Norman and learning
all I could about this amazing new world. Our one week stay was extended by five days due to a blizzard hitting the east coast
. Once I got back home I made up my mind that I was going to learn to sail. I took classes
at Boston Sailing Center and am now a member
there. I've been getting out every chance I get, 2-3 times a week and I just chartered my first bareboat
in the BVI
for next April. I'm sure I will be coming back often with lots of questions and also to get ideas on other possible destinations down the road.
