Hey everyone, I'm very new. I'm hoping we can generate some discussion in this thread.
I'm 25 and will be moving to Mobile Bay to live and work on the family sailboat in the next month.
I've sailed with the University of Tennessee (the *real* UT!) Sailing Club and Team, but have been out of it for awhile, finishing up my degree, so I'm a bit apprehensive about getting a feel for things again.
I never really felt comfortable with our boat, anyhow, as it's 27' and I learned to sail through a Broadreach program on a 52' boat.
So, I'm really hoping I'll meet some awesome people down in the Bay that might be willing to teach me a thing or two.
Of course, I anticipate I'll make lots of friends of all ages
, but as I've experienced it, there are very few people my age
in yachting communities, so maybe I they'll pop out of the woodwork with me posting here?
