Re: Mainers, Midcoasters, Maine
Denise, Stop feeling sorry for youself. 64 is far from old. If I were you I would head south this fall. By the time spring rolls around, you'll have the confidence to head north, and conquer Cape May, and wonder why you hadn't done it sooner.
You have the knowledge, and the skill will come quickly, but you have to untie those docklines. I'm 74, and did just that in a 36' catamaran 15 years ago, and several more times after that, always singlehanded.
Just do it. You wont be sorry.
