Hello from Phoenix AZ

Hello folks;

I've been a user of this forum for quite some time but never posted myself. I'm a fairly new owner of a 79 Oday 23. Recently finished a series of rigging and sailing lessons and now just logging in as many hrs that I can to gain experience.

Wife and I also recently purchased our future retirment home in Florida and are looking forward to doing some wandering of our own with a larger boat once we're resettled. Islands & US coastal cruising mainly.

We will be in the Key West area early this May for a few days and would love to have the opportunity to chat with anyone in the area over lunch or a beer or three.

Aloha and welcome aboard!
My first boat was about the same size as yours and it was a great learning platform. Because of its size and ease of handling I was sailing a lot more than the larger boats in our marina.
kind regards,

Welcome aboard. My first boat was way smaller than that. Had to be able to hide it from the dinosaurs. TIC lol
The basis of accomplishment is in never quitting
