Just wanted to say hi and introduce myself. My wife and I live just north of Charlotte, NC on the west side of Lake Norman. I'm not exactly new to sailing but then I'm not exactly experienced either. My first experience with sailing was close to 25 years ago when I was a kid and learned to sail on a local park lake. Shortly after my parents bought me a small sabot which I used as much as possible growing up (considering the 3 hour drive to where it was stored).
Well now I'm all grown up and have my own power boat
on Lake Norman but I've recently gotten the bug again and have started restoring that little ole sabot so I can teach my wife to sail and hopefully get her hooked. Our dream is to eventually retire on a live aboard so I want to make sure we both have the knowledge we need BEFORE then.
Eventually I'd like to get my hands on (either build or buy) a multi sail boat
so I can learn how to handle a jib
