I thought Texans listened to BOTH kinds of music...

Country and Western.

The seed was planted in 1971 - age the age of 11 - sailing O'Day Sprites on Lake Massapog. My mom wanted me out of the house for the summer so she signed me up. At the time, I hated being forced to go out with 3 other kids (who knew each other), whose mom's through them out of the house. (I guess we were in the same boat ) I did like it when I was able to take the boat out alone, however. Solo sailing was part of the "final" exam which was both written and practical. To get even with my mom, I failed the written part - twice! (Hey, I was 11 )

Occasionally, I would get the chance to take a boat out through the years, and was suprised at what I remembered.

I signed up for lessons on Boston harbor in 2004 through the BHSC, and was introduced to sailing on Pearsons and Cals >25 feet. I realized that I love sailing, and have been looking for the right boat for the last year.

Since 2005 I have introduced "the Admiral" and she likes it too, but not as much as I do. I am ready to quit the job sell the house, the cars, and sail the east coast. She is not I actually tried the "quit the job" part last year and did a lot of sailing, but found that I need a paycheck to pay the mortgage and taxes. If I could figure out how to make a living (not a fortune) while living on a boat, we would be heading out there right now...

At 15 I went sailing with a friend and his father. Jack, the father, taught me to sail on a 28 foot E scow. It was the fastest sailboat on the river. And he loved to sail it on the edge. He sailed it over the edge many times. The standing joke was about losing the wind indicator from the top of the mast, in the mud on the river bottom. My friend moved away, but I sailed with Jack until he died.
Then Hobie Cats, Windsurfing and now the Hannah Lee.
