Ready to sail
Saved up some money and quit the computer consulting job in order to pursue a long-time fantasy of travel/exploration via sailboat. I have day-sailing experience in small boats on Lake Michigan thanks to a club in Chicago, but I'm looking to try out the full-on live-aboard sailing lifestyle. Don't own a boat yet, but probably will eventually if I get hooked.
I'm going to start up with a live-aboard certification course to get up to speed with bigger craft, navigation, etc. Looking for networking opportunities and to meet like-minded folks with similar goals - maybe we can team up.
My dream sailing experience would be island-hopping in the South Pacific. I'm also interested in square-rigged tall ships - that seems like it would be an amazing experience and great learning opportunity.
Anyway, I'll see you out there in a bit!
