Visiting Tampa Aug 7-9; room on your boat for 2 for a day?

I will be in the Tampa Bay area the week of August 6-10.

Is there anyone in the area who is going out for a day sail any time Aug 7, 8 or 9? I'd love to join you, along with a local friend who never has been sailing, and who is somewhat concerned about the ocean, although she has lived on the Gulf all her life. She says she is willing to learn. In other words, I don't think rail in the water the first time out would endear her to the sport.

I myself have limited experience, most of that in the Gulf Islands of Vancouver Island. Would love to get an idea of your thoughts on marinas and brokers in your area, as I will be buying a condo there, as well as looking for a boat.

Do you know how hot Florida is in August!!! LOL I usually sail in the evening that time of year. I may be out of town then but if not we may be able to get together for a sail. Visitors usually like sunset sails and we could stay in the ICW to keep it pleasant for the novice.

Yeah, I've been told.. lol. Actually, it's hard to believe, the last couple of days it was as hot or hotter here (Edmonton, Alberta,Canada). Here is a shot of my thermometer... in the shade, earlier this week. To be fair, we do not get your humidity.

I appreciate your offer, and will get in touch as we get closer to the time. Thanks!
