Just kidding, it's rainy and kinda cold. But I love it here. 4 years ago I bought my first boat
, a Bristol 22, and learned how to sail on it. I realize that's not advisable (being terrified of making mistakes
has definitely steepened the learning
curve). A couple years ago I traded in my Bristol for an Irwin
25, with the goal of luring friends onto the boat
for weekends of cruising. My plan worked and I've spent the last couple summers exploring the islands of Casco Bay.
Like many novice
cruisers, I've got lofty aspirations for the future. I look forward to continuing (been a lurker for a while) to use the CF to further my cruising knowledge by soaking up information from the those who know more than I.
