Chris, It sounds like a plan. Make sure you sail like crazy, as often as you can. And don't let the lack of ASA 10? keep you from it. A few years ago, we bought a 25 footer and started sailing. We took a Sailing and Seamanship class through the USCGA local Power Squadron and read Sailing For Dummies (it's real), but when I hoisted my main that spring, that was my first time sailing, ever. I tend to be a just-do-it guy anyway. We've got around 1200 miles of coastal sailing behind us now and I don't regret a single minute. Well, maybe the 45 minutes is took me to push my dinghy over the clam flats in calf deep mud to get to water and back to the boat. Those I didn't like.

Fair Winds and fairer deals,
