I'm a middle-aged IT architect/cloud/devops engineer
, originally from NYC
, with dreams of circumnavigation
. I used to sail a bit when I was younger (J24s) and always loved the ocean. I'm starting my five year plan to get experience, get the family
on board, and make this dream a reality.
I've taken ASA
101/103 and my wife and I are in the planning stages of a learn-to-sail vacation
some time in July in the USVIs. The thought was to do an ASA
103, 104, 114 series as a learning vacation
to ensure we enjoy the life, don't get seasick (too badly anyway), and can handle ourselves. If all goes well, we'd like to get out on bare-boat charters a few times and eventually get our own boat
Looking forward to reading up on this forum and learning
from folks who have been out there.
