Rome wasn't built in a day, but most of what was built of importance is still standing. You've taken a lot of first steps in a very long journey. Don't get big headed, and just keep on testing yourself & vessel. High five to you too.........i2f

Hey, Newport- I've been following your progress closely, as it somewhat mirrors what I've been doing out of Marina Del Rey. The only reason I don't post more or blog is because it would probably be redundant to yours. Experience-wise, I'm just a little further ahead of you, so I'll predict that you will very soon be sailing to Catalina. I'll be making my maiden voyage there this Sunday.

Imagine, I am not bigheaded at all...HUMBLED is the word. I am just happy that with sea time I am gaining in my knowledge and that will probably never change...

rbrasi, congrats and thanks! Enjoy Catalina, I will be headed there soon....the wind yesterday was perfect, it would have taken me straight to Avalon without a tack! I was 1/4 of the way there before turning back...
