Hello everyone. My wife and I have recently started the 1st planning stage of joining you all out there. We live in the Pacific northwestWashington state. The short term plan is get as much hands on experiance sailing as possible while picking a decent sailboat. Looking at 25 footers amd becoming proficient and capable sailers here. I'd like to have a good 3 years of hands on and winds in experiance right here at home before going bigger. Very glad to be here. From what I've seen so far its going to be a great learning experiance.
