Short time lurker, first time poster! I've always had an interest in sailing and daydreamed about seeing the world. I decided that if I keep waiting for the right time I'll be waiting forever.
I'm starting by taking some ASA
lessons here in Northern California
. My hope is that over the next couple of years I can gain some experience chartering boats and crewing
until I have at least some idea of what I want in a boat
. My 5 year plan is to buy a boat
, and after that I hope to work
half time and sail half time!
We'll see how it goes! My wife is on board for the first part of learning
to sail. She seems open to the idea of cruising...But I think she's skeptical I'll stick with it long enough to get that far. I'm glad I've got plenty of time to bring her around. In the meantime I'll keep sneaking sailing channels into her youtube subscriptions.
Thanks for having me! I'm happy to be here!
