Awesome start rjayne1. My first sailboat was a 22' O'Day. Great little boat
. Big enough to go out for a few days, but small enough so that it was easily manageable. Great start.
When you are ready, move up to something slightly larger. Sailing is the easiest part of living and cruising on a boat
. Cruising skills, which include sailing, but also involve a whole lot of other factors, is key to future success.
But great start
. Enjoy the journey.
