New Member Intro

Just logging in for the first time. I have greatly enjoyed reading the posts from this community and thought I should stop "lurking".

I live in Rochester Minnesota and sail dinghies in northern inland lakes. Will probably embark on the daysailer journey soon, who knows where that will lead.

Apologies in advance if my initial posts occasionally appear uneducated, since that is the case...

Monty

Welcome, indeed. Seems like there has been quite a flush of small boat sailors recently. Chime right in.

Welcome Monty, ask any question you like. If you have been lurking here for awhile you probably know that posting your picture is at your own peril. John

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

Another new member here (no pics yet). The missus and I just bought an American Mariner 6.5 from a friend. She is in very good shape and we are already having fun. Our sailing ground will be Greer's Ferry Lake here in Arkansas where we will be daysailng and weekend cruising. I learned to sail many years ago on Lake Ponchartrain while I was in seminary at New Orleans. The sailing club there had three J/22's and gave lessons with membership. It's been quite a few years since then and now we finally have our own boat! We feel quite blessed and look forward to learning from the community. Rev
