Just saying "hi" after years of visiting here whenever I needed good sailing information, and asking permission to come aboard as member
of the community!
I'm in the process of buying
a sailboat with the intention of taking her on a 5-7 year voyage around the world.I've already been poking around here (a LOT) for research
the right boat
and planning for the journey, and thought I'd finally introduce myself.
I've got around 5,000 blue water
miles and two circumnavigations of the Caribbean
under my belt from 25 years ago - that's not a lot, I know. But it's enough to let me know what I'm getting myself into. :-)
I'm based in Lake Tahoe, CA right now, and will be moving down to the Channel Islands area to prep the boat
and crew) over the summer, so I'm looking forward to meeting some of the California
coastal sailors over the next few months. :-)
Thank you for being such a great resource for sailors of all stripes.
