Hello from Michigan

I am recently new to sailing and new to this Forum, I do own a kayak though, but I thought it was time to upgrade. I decided to put the motorcycle away for a while, to many cage drivers.

I did a 12 hr one day sailing trip here in Michigan from Metro Beach to the Port Sanilac Marina and was hooked.

I am interested in the Catalina Sailboats, read these are good starter boats. I started out looking at the 22' then the 25' now I'm liking the 27' due to the headroom. But with Michigan winters lasting so long I hope the boat length doesn't keep increasing. I want something that I can handle myself. Something used, I can pay cash for. I do know that that you can pick up a older use Catalina 27' for under $7,000.

I was told to get into racing to learn how to sail also.

I'm looking to any pieces of information that might help me along to the way.

Thank You again.
Enjoy Life's Journey

Re: Hello from Michigan

Welcome. You've picked a good place to start. Just read, ask questions, volunteer (for jobs on boats), etc. And since the Michigan sailing season is 5+ months away, there's no rush to get a boat yet. Well, unless vacation is pending, & you have one that's trailerable
