Sounds great. I'm retiring in June, plan to cruise the East Coast part time. While I like to get the best from my sailboat, I hate to hurry. Motorboat guys ask "Isn't it slow?" I tell them that if I were late I'd take the car.
Years ago I knew an 80ish sailor named Herb. He told me that when he was young he played tennis and other sports. He went sailing for the first time at 26 and never played tennis again. Welcome aboard.
