Another new sailor's story

Well boat owner anyway. See the link for a series of weekly videos that have been posted by this young lady weekly since August 2013. The videos are very well done. I thought that pointing out a series like this might help the numbers of people who come here for advice in ho to proceed with a "own a sailboat for cruising" dream.

Group9, Rhapsody-NS27 and Alex W like this.

I enjoyed those

nice to spend a few hours in a warm place when the wind is howling around the house and the rain is dropping from leaden skies

I hope she keeps it up

She's about the coolest thing I've seen in a while.

She explains why I like to sail better than I explain why I like to sail.
