Hi. I'm a guy in this 30s. I've been on a sailboat exactly once in my life. That said, I've always been curious and I've always been drawn to long journeys.
I want to learn as much as I can over the next 20 years so one day I can captain
my own ship and explore the world.
Any tips on how to begin? I live near Baltimore
, so right now the plan is to take lessons at one of the harbors when it warms up and I've been vaccinated. I've got a few sailing and ship maintenance books
on my Christmas
list. Hopefully one day I'll be able to crew a boat
and maybe help someone out with repairs
so I can get in there and get my hands dirty.
Any tips and advice
would be enormously welcome. Thank you and happy sailing!
