Re: Who from SailNet would you most like to meet in person?

In the short time since returning to sailing I have met many outside of SailNet in my journey to buy a boat. What this allowed me to learn is that every sailor is the others teacher and that I would like to met everyone in SailNet. Sailors are still a band unto ourselves. Whom can we relate to, share our love, passions and failures with except our own. No one else can empathize with us and we each must learn from and take care of the other because it is our very lives we commit to our passion each time we cast off and make way for the horizon. So yes, kind or grizzled, meek or opinionated, fair or salty I hope to met every SailNet member in my journey for they are my clan.

I have no idea what difference it makes.

I wouldn't mind meeting members from on the Chesapeake. In the 3 years I've been on Cobb Island on the Potomac I've only actually met a couple.

Only the Conservatives and Liberals! The rest are 'empty-headed' dolts! Oh.... and maybe the undecideds as well.

Re: Who from SailNet would you most like to meet in person?

I'm sure you'd all make for a fine conversation or sailing crew. I'd be happy to meet just about anyone from SN since we all share at least several common interests.

But for me, I'd love to sit down with Bob Perry someday and just pick his brain and maybe sketch a few boats...

Re: Who from SailNet would you most like to meet in person?

As c2s/Dave mentioned, the Chesapeake Bay folks have built a great community among SN through the annual SN rendezvous in June, so I have met several members and have become good friends with many and we always look forward to the event every year!

I know I forgot some, but SN Members I have not met face to face but would enjoy the opportunity to...
Cruisingdad
Faster
Maine Sail
Hellosailor
jackdale
jrd22
CalebD
bljones
Flyingwelshman
SimonV
BubbleheadMD
Jameswilson29
Killarney Sailor
Smack Daddy
rockDAWG
erps
PCP
and of course they are no loger here, but I would really enjoy meeting Camaraderie, Giulietta, and Denby

Whoops...were we only to pick one? Then I would have to go with Cruisingdad, then I could buy him a beer and say thanks

Re: Who from SailNet would you most like to meet in person?

I have meet several persons in person from both here and A-S.
Many long lasting friendships started right here, almost too many to name.
I look forward to meeting many more in the months to come including the rendezvous on the Chessie.
Also, hope to see many familiar faces from the Midwest at Strictly Sail Chicago.
