Hi there
Greetings from a new member. Iíve been sailing off and on through local charters for a few years and want to captain my own boat. Iíll be taking a basic keelboat sailing certification class this fall and hope to purchase a boat in the next year or so. The excitement grows. So grateful to have this resource and all of you to share with and learn from.

Re: Hi there
Well done Golden!

Don, let's guess. Does the "Golden" perhaps refer to the Golden Gate Bridge = San Francisco?

What do we win if we get it right?

Welcome Golden Gears - and do take that keelboat course. It'll be a good supplement to what you may have learned so far.:thumb:

Fair winds,
LittleWing77 :biggrin:

Re: Hi there
Hello! You’re further along than me. I’m looking forward to my second outing on a sunfish tomorrow. Can’t wait to get to the buying-a-boat phase!

Hoping that you'll gain help and useful information from the forum, as well as your sailing courses, and ultimately achieve your goals.

Also feel free to post your own thoughts and ideas. The forum only works when people post and 95% of members seem reluctant.
