Re: Philadelphia Area Sailing for a Novice on a 25' SK

Thank you both.

Essington is sounding like a good spot.

Any thoughts on the area up by Winter's Sailing Center?

Also, any thoughts on whether a Catalina 250 would be a good starter boat for this area? It seems to me that there is a market for them - so if a couple seasons down the road I want to change, I'll have a decent chance of recovering some of what I spent (either through a trade-in or outright sale). I repeatedly see that they are good starter boats, stable and good for families (all important things to me).

Lastly, I realize that my name on here may cause confusion - given that I now realize there's a brand of boat called jboat! I just innocently took an initial from my name and added 'boat'.
