Re: Philadelphia Area Sailing for a Novice on a 25' SK
I was hoping to resurrect this thread because I'm in quite a similar position.
I live in Philadelphia and from reading on here I've been getting swayed to the advantages of keeping a boat closer to home (less driving, more sailing, even if less pretty). For that reason, I'm thinking of getting a first boat (probably less than 25 feet) and getting a slip at Winters/Riverside or somewhere near Essignton.
What did the OP end up doing for this season?
Also, any comments on a Catalina 250 from the early 2000s for the Delaware River would be much appreciated.
I've taken the ASA 101 course and chartered several more times. I think the best thing for me is practice practice practice - then re-evaluate in a couple years and possibly move on to a bigger boat and maybe a different location.
Thanks in advance.
