Thanks, great site!

Btw, I just got a TRX for Christmas. Was just thinking how perfect it would be on a boat...

Thank you!

I just posted a video on the blog this morning of us launching our boat yesterday (no excitement in the video though... they didn't drop it). After all that we saw snowflakes at the marina today!!! We're definitely looking forward to the warmer weather so we can get back to sailing.

We found a day charter dude that would teach us while we sailed. It was our first time ever on a sailboat (Hunter 30). You can find the same thing with the big companies, but they're definitely more expensive. Ours was like $200 for the day.

Just do some poking around. You really can learn a lot in a couple of days with this kind of arrangement.
