Port of Rochester, NY

OK, so after two years of reading about sailing, studying terms, learning weather, tying knots, I'm ready to take the next step and actually get on a sailboat. I've had a passion for sailing, but never made the time to fit it into my life. Now at age 40 I'm ready to move on this and I'm excited! I was supposed to take lessons last Fall at Canandaigua YC, however, transmission decided to go on the van the week classes started! Oh well, itís a new year and this time Iím trying to find a skipper(s) who are willing to let me crew for them and learn at a fraction of the cost. Maybe in 2014 Iíll invest in my own s/v, Iím thinking a 23í to 27í sloop. Anyways, Iíve read a lot of blogs from this site, but now I figured Iíd join and add my voice to the thousands here already doing what I am so anxious to get started doing, sailing!
