Thank-you Sailnet Members... Had A Blast

I want to take this oportunity to thank sailnet members for all the great advise and information on sailing.
Last fall I purchased my first sailboat. Since I was new to sailing, I joined sailnet hoping to gain some information and knowledge on sailing.I have read sailnet posts daily and watched several videos on how to sail.

Well.....I just got home from spending 3 days on her and what a blast my wife and I had. The weather was great. Although the winds were rather light, it gave me the perfect opportunity to play around with the sails and rigging.
I did not break any speed records, and there is much room for improvement, but we had a super time.

Without all the knowledge I learned from this website, I'm sure I could not of done it. Can't wait to go out again

Thanks again
