Welcome to the "club" of sailors. I've been at the Isthmus of Catalina Island off the coast of Southern California for a couple of days and got back yesterday to Huntington Harbour where I store my MacGregor 26D on a trailor... a "far piece" from Boston. Got my sailboat when I was well past the age to logically own one. I'm now 76 years old and still going strong.

Places like Hawaii and the Azores will require sea legs, many miles under the keel, and a blue water upgrade
Anyway, it's great to be part of this community, even though I don't even have a boat yet. The warm welcome and great advice I've received here has been awesome!
