Re: New boat owner looking for day ride PNW
Wow, they don't exaggerate the cloud cover in the PNW, do they? I want to run for cover just looking at that sky. Congratulations on the boat.
In your shoes I would hire a private sailing instructor and learn on your new boat. I know everyone says offer to crew to learn to sail, but in my experience most skippers are looking for experienced crew. (Or will take a chance on you if you seem like you'd be good sport on board).
