Hi....

I live in phladelphia suburbs and have the sailing bug pretty bad. I took a sailing clas in '93 in annapolis but sailed little since then. Well this spring I am taking another 2 day class and hope to get on a 5 day intermediate sail down the Delaware and thru the C&D canal.

I need some help. Should i buy a boat,or find a place to rent. In either case I need some guidance. I am currently going on web sites and looking for boats size 25-27 feet.

I know that in order to really enjoy the sport I will need a lot of time on the water. Thus my consternation on just how should I do that.

I feel a little overwhelmed right now as I do not want to jump and make a mistake on my first attempy at boat ownership.

I will appreciate all comments.
