My goal is to sail around the world. But first, I'm taking my first sailing lessons next month when it starts to cool off.
I'm looking forward to meeting lots of people and making lots of friends.
Hi Angela, welcome, you dream big don't you? <*is there a "thumbs-up" emoticon?*> but starting from scratch as you are is doable - my husband had never been on a sailboat at all till he was 50, we're now fulltime liveaboards headed for the Bahamas this winter.
