Got into sailing....

Twinsdad, looks like you are reviving an old post.

I got into sailing just last summer, 2011, at the age of 45. My dad gave me his old boat that he couldn't sail anymore. Because I did not live near, I was never able to go sailing with him. Instead of getting that boat sailable, I bought an old Catalina 27, launched it, and took a few lessons. Then I spent the summer sailing around in Fisher's Island Sound.

What a lot of time I've wasted! I love sailing- can't wait to get back out on the water this summer and expand my horizons.
