Hello, all

As the name implies, I am somewhat new to sailing. Mind you, I'm not new to boats or the water. Just new to sailing. I have a great teacher who spent a fair part of his life racing sailboats.

So last year I bought a Grampian 23 that seems to be in fairly good condition. My teacher and I have been out on the Chesapeake, and I've already mastered several tough maneuvers (like the knockdown and the pirouette). In particular, I learned that I have a very shrill scream.

Anyway, I just wanted to stop by and say hello to all my future buds and to let you know that if you see a G23 coming at you with an old guy screaming like a school girl, it may be best to just cut anchor and run. Steering and stopping are still a couple of my weak points.
