Only just spotted this thread ,havn't been looking at the site 'til now.
After taking Power Squadron basic boating bought our Tartan 27 in 1994 (neither of us ever having sailed before) the previous owner rigged her for us and the person at the next dock showed us how to hoist the sails. From rhen on practice, practice read(inhaled) books and asked questions.
In 1999 we sold our house and moved onto said Tartan 27 and spent 2 years on her in Keys and Bahamas.Then 5 years living the summer on her and renting for the winter in the lakes.
Life is good
