Old Dog, New Tricks. Sailing Lake Ontario

Curiosity got the best of me and I'm too old to know better. After 22 years in the US Navy, I missed being underway for the past 20 years. Bought a sailboat and signed up for a sailing course. Plan is to sail in the Great Lakes for two years and get comfortable with my boat and abilities. Long range goal is cruising the Carib with my wife.

Great plan - plenty to see and do on the big lakes. Summers are a bit too short is my only complaint.
