Hello Everyone!

We are brand new to sailing. We went out for an afternoon sail with some friends and fell instantly in love. A week later, we bought a 1978 Catalina 25 (I hope I'm saying that right). We've been cleaning, repairing, and learning for the last six weeks. We've taken the boat out four times and each time it's getting a little easier. We've been really lucky to have friends who have been sailing for many years. Great teachers!

We live in beautiful Fruit Cove, Florida. How can you not love sailing when you are surrounded by water and live in a place with great weather year round? So far our experience has been limited to the St. Johns River. We want to get out on the inter-coastal in the next month or so. Once we learn a little more, we want to sell our learner boat and upgrade to something a little bigger and get out into the ocean.

I look forward to meeting everyone!
