First off, thank you all for sharing your experience and passion for sailing. It's been a ton of fun and educational to read about others' journeys.
A little bit about myself. I spent some time in the early 2000's learning
to sail on a buddy's Tartan 27 (or 28? it's been a while) in NJ around the Sandy Hook & Raritan
Bays. It was an older boat
(even for that time) but absolutely gorgeous, fast, and a ton of fun to sail!
Life/adulthood happened, and we had to give up sailing. The passion to sail never left, but due to moving around and not living near the ocean haven't spent any time sailing since. Now that we live close to a lake, the wife and I decided to take an ASA
101 course and spend as much time as we can building up our skills.
Our goal, like many many many others here
is to build up our sailing, maintenance
, and repair skills, and settle somewhere in bluer waters.
Now that I've dropped by and said hello, back to researching marine
surveyors . .
