Guess I was slow to respond to this.
Life and economic changes have caused a shift in my focus from racing to cruising. I have lived aboard for the past 4 months, but as of this week, I have re-occupied my home.
I do have some short and mid-distance races I'd like to do, but I have a few specific cruising goals I want to achieve:
1. Sail the loop around DeLMarVa. I expect to do this single-handed because all of my friends are married with small children, or besieged by work and social commitments.
2. I'm attempting to put together my own get-together down in Solomons. I'm working this over on Sailing Anarchy, which is why no one here has heard of it. It will not interfere in anyway with the Sailnet Rendezvous.
3. Get some sailing experience in the northern Chesapeake.
