Hello all. I grew up in Venezuela
and while a teenager my dad owned several sailboats. Our typical sail would be a 12 hour trip to the Los Roques Islands..I really miss it.
I moved to the states at 16, and that was the end of my sailing. Now at 42 I bought a large boat
in some disrepair and plan to fix it and sail again.
is currently in Sausalito, CA
I am curious as to what would be a good sailing club... or even if its worth joining one. I havent lifted sail yet as I wish to fix the engine
first.. so I am just tinkering with the boat for now.
And after reading the thread on 'Study cases' for drowned skippers all blood drained from my face and I had the chills.. so now I'll be spending more time and money
, lifesling, harnesses and the like.
Nice to meet you all..
