Hello, All - I'm new to this forum and would like to introduce myself. My wife and I have two children
, 6 & 8 years old, and we hail from West Hartford, CT USA.
I'm a lifelong mariner and graduate of Maine
Maritime Academy. Even though I don't sail for a living any more, there is little that occupies more of my time than boats and sailing do. I grew up sailing in Newburyport, MA and these days sail out of New Haven, CT. I recently sold
my Bristol 29 in order to make way for the next thing.
My wife and I have good career stop (or at least pause) points when the school
year ends in spring of 2022, and we plan to go cruise
for a year then, at least to start. In the meantime we are prepping our home for rentals and seeking an appropriate vessel. I don't really plan to buy a boat
until next year, but you never know what opportunities will pop up. For now we're playing with the little boats, and pulling a Nordica 16 together for the kids
I'm pleased to be here.
