Hello, I'm not too far off. I'm by Edmonton Alberta, fresh water
lake sailing here. Although not now as we are having a spring snow storm:@
We will be in Vancouver
this may chartering a lagoon
38. It's beautiful sailing through the gulf islands.
The leopard 40
is a nice cat, but don't make up your mind yet. Once you saw get some experience your tastes might change, or be reinforced. Keep an open mind and just enjoy every chance, and every boat
you can get on.
The secret to becoming a good sailor, and knowing what boat
you want, is to sail every chance you get, on every boat you can.
After all its" the dream" because it's so damn fun and fulfilling:-)
We have a mono here, and enjoy summers with her. It definitely helps with practise. You could also join a local yacht club doing club races, crewing
, or charter
In short, welcome to the forum from a fellow Canadian.
Oh, and you have some great options for courses in Vancouver
. We used "ocean forest voyaging" for comp crew and day skipper
cert, and are chartering with Coopers. So far happy with both.
