I'm John and in one line: getting into sailing...
First thanks, for all info I already found on this forum, all insights you shared, the stories bad and good, it's really a nice place to visit.
That was one of the reasons to join.
Next is my recent new awakening to sailing.
New since I have it for as long as I can remember, but current
phase in life seem to make this old dream possible again.
I'm looking ahead some 4 to 8 years due to the kids
being old enough and the financial means to come into place.
As a lot of sailors? I have the ultimate dream of my own boat
, build from scratch to my personal wishes, but also realize this will probably not be feasible due to limited means or too big wishes (probably both).
No matter what, my goals are quite extreme since I plan to be able to sail long-term and would like to have the financial means in place to make 'sure' I could do so.
No clue yet where all this will get me, but probably I will be starting to ask specific questions about everything from what courses to do, to other means of getting more info and experience, to dedicated questions about material choices, size and shape, via equipment
So basically all the stuff we all seem to struggle with (some seem to know a lot I must admit
For now there seems to be more than enough to read or better study.
