Re: How did you get your start in sailing?

Started day sailing with my family as a kid on the St. Lawrence Seaway in Quebec Canada on a 16' Maurauder (built in France around 1960). Little sloop with no equipment except for an easy to foul furling jib. Did a little dinghy sailing at summer camp and with friends. Enjoyed a couple of bareboat charters in the Carribean. Have been kayaking and boating in the PNW for last 25 years. Finally bought my own sailboat a Cal 2-27 which I hope to take N to the Broughtons. Would love do do it singlehanded. It seems ike a good time in life for an adventure. I need to be more familiar with the hardware on the boat before this becomes a reality though. Lots of posters say just do it???!!! Opinions??
