Hello to all...I've been lurking and learning
for months, and want to thank the members and moderators for such an informative (and entertaining!) forum. My wife and I live in Wyoming, and have been chartering several times per year to build our sailing experience. We're chasing the dream of buying
a cat and living aboard
in a few years. To start learning
, we did our US Sailing Basic Keel Boat
(on Rob Swain's IC24) and Bareboat
Cruising (on a Lagoon
420) certifications in the BVIs during February, then bareboated an FP Mahe 36
during May (also in the BVIs) to test our newly acquired skills. Two of the best weeks of my life! Headed to Annapolis
44 in another week, then staying for the boat show
and New Years this year will find us working on our Coastal Nav and Coastal Passagemaking courses aboard a Bahia
46 out of Antigua
, and then back to the BVIs next April for a fun cruise
with friends. We have the BUG!
Looking forward to continuing to learn a lot on the forum...
