-Snow laden economics major, sailer to be.
While I was in college I found a cheap Hobie 14 that was stored at a local yacht club (under the I-10 bridge) so it was ready to shove off into the water with little notice. I sailed every day in the summer after classes. Learned a lot and picked up a life-long passion for sailing. Start small and get something you can afford.
